Nudinits - Tickled Pink

Directed by Sarah Simi

(United Kingdom)

Runtime- 22 minutes

English language

In a cosy corner of England there are a couple of things the villagers are far too polite to mention. Everyone is naked and there's a huge double entendre in the room. In the world's first all knitted animation, nudinits are the quirky inhabitants of Woolly Bush, a village bursting with Britishness and bare bottoms. There are crumpets and vicars, cockneys and twitchers, cream horns and slippers all wrapped up in a blanket of Carry On silliness with just a stitch of Camberwick Green. Everything in this film has been hand knitted in Britain, even the fag ends and dog poo. In this episode, 'Tickled Pink', the village celebrates Barbara's birthday but has Bernard remembered and just what will the vicar spread over Hattie's muffins? Filmed in Woolly Vision.

Sry Bsy

Directed by Verena Westphal

(Germany)

3 minutes

Subtitles

Sry bsy - no time for nothing. Not even for spelling in full the words “sorry” and “busy”... 
This digital 2D animation is about obsessions, compulsions and the pressure of keeping up with the challenges of modern working life. By combining a dark sense of humour with absurd elements, 'Sry Bsy' is amusing and disturbing at the same time.
