Animation FirstÂ challenges the public perception that animation is just for kids, which can be exemplified through this clever and funnyÂ Opening Night teaser trailer. The teaser begins with some clips from the trailer of the beloved 3D family filmÂ Minuscule: Valley of the Lost Ants, followed byÂ a title card that then reads, “Send the kids home, stay for the shorts!” after which, we see clips from the Erotic Animated Shorts, where animators let their imaginations run wild. Sensual, erotic, naughty, poetic or risquÃ©, these fanciful and unconventional shorts celebrate passion, desire and fantasies.
With 12 US and New York premieres,Â Animation FirstÂ presents ambitious, innovative, and award-winning animated feature and short films, virtual reality, video games, and more, coming out of Franceâ€™s most exciting studios and art schools.Â Animation FirstÂ features special screenings and events for all ages, putting audiences in the front seat of 3D animation, works in progress, interactive workshops on drawing and sound effects, gaming demonstrations, and panel discussions with leading artists and studio executives.
