Programme

 

Each edition of the RICA festival in Wissembourg
(a town on the border with Germany) dedicates a specific programme to German animation...
One way of embedding the festival in a context of cross-border cultural exchange.

The Focus on German animation is a selection of animated short-films made
between 2014 and 2016.
