This delicate and serene animation follows the journey of life shown through a spectacular display of warm, luminescent lights. Mother Nature’s pick for the Gold.

FUMIKO’S CONFESSION
Hiroyasu Ishida (Japan)

An indie short film fit for the big screen and ready to be snapped up by broadcasting stations, this is funny even without a translation. Revolves around a high school girl who resolutely prepares herself to make a declaration (of love?).
