ARIPI: At first it looks like a glimpse into a child’s dream. A little boy is standing on the roof, improvised wings made of cardboard on his back. Upon him jumping off the roof, the audience and the young hero are plunged into a completely different adventure, where meteorites fly and an astronaut drama unfolds. The animated story about the power of the universe and of children’s desires is the first ever Moldovan VR film. It has been screened at more than twenty international festivals. / LUTAW: Geramy and Isko live on one of the many deserted islands in the Philippines. To get to school they have to swim a long distance to the mainland every day. Little Isko is not yet capable of this challenging task. Geramy decides to take the situation literally into her own hands and build a simple boat. Reflecting the difficult access to education in developing countries, the animated project was nominated for the prestigious Webby Award. / UPSTANDER: A common American elementary school. A long corridor full of lockers where children put their things. Instead of the pupils, though, there are multicoloured backpacks bouncing around as avatars. And three of them want to play basketball in the gym. But who is usurping the whole gym for themselves, not allowing the others to touch the ball? The socially-themed project by Venice award-winning director Van Phan focuses on the topic of school bullying and explores how it can be prevented.
