Animare Story


At Cinema San Luigi, on February 11th, 18th and 25th, short films from Cesenatico's Animare Film Festival are playing (Lifeguard cooperative of Cesenatico). Some of the shorts which competed in the previous editions have been proposed again. The films have been evaluated by a young jury composed of a total of 152 children from 37 different schools. With great enthusiasm, they acted just like experienced film critics. After 9 thrilling elimination rounds with 18 films in the running, the overall winner was the French short Selfie Cat (France). The film, in the semi-final round, had won over one of the favoured film of the Festival: Alike (Spain). At the end of the event, adults also participated. The great majority of them unofficially chose Cuerdas (Spain) as their favourite. The Spanish film had been declared second in the final round by the child jury.
