The Students Competition invites us to the depth of human feelings

This program, like love, is both terrifying and attractive.

Last night, the student film competition program was opened within the 14th edition of the Animation Festival – Anibar in Peja. The audience was shown a diverse range of student films that shed light on the depths of feelings and explore the challenges of human life. This film program comes as a grand journey through the excellence and challenges of love, identity, and personal development. Through the construction of powerful stories and symbolic figures, films such as “Pussy Love”, “Soaked In”, “FURRIES”, “Baby Steps”, “Above the Clouds” and “Curiosa” provides a philosophical perspective on the human experiences related to the lust

Through humor, metaphors, and artistic movements, these films shed new light on the relationships between people, pleasure and despair, pain and happiness. They invite us to think about how we pursue and express our feelings, how our brains deal with issues of identity, and how we can be open to new insights that require us to walk our path of personal growth.

This special selection of student animation films reveals the value of art as a means of expressing the most essential emotions and allowing us to identify with the characters’ experiences profoundly.


Pussy Love

This film comes to Anibar from the German director Linda Krauss, who in four minutes of her animation brings us together with the cute cat and invites us to join the world of Pussy Love. Enjoy a show of lust and laziness! Where you can have fun with breasts and penis. The claws are sharpened, the sodas ready, and the fur is getting wet. Romance is kitsch. But even the most jaded cat can still lose its head for love.


Soaked In

From director Shiyu Tang, in 4 minutes 45 seconds, it reflects on the despair and pleasure of gender selection. This film comes from China to Kosovo.



In 8 minutes and 36 seconds, the film by Lucie Grannec, from France, invites us into the world of a person in open and various relationships. Furrie the dolphin is on the loose with fifteen inflatable animals, a crazy fox in love with a cereal mascot, a group of animals skilled with firearms, and more. Various existing portraits of members of the furry community, anthropomorphic animal lovers and enthusiasts.


Baby Steps

From Hungary, Julia Tudisco and Jözsef Fülöp bring their over four-minute film, which depicts the life of a teenage girl who is deep in thought in her bathroom trying to come to terms with an unexpected situation surrounding motherhood. Her process takes us on an adventure to find acceptance, step by step.


Above the clouds

A young girl suddenly finds herself in love again. When she realizes this, she must run away. A vortex takes her to her past, where she has the chance to free her heart if she re-enacts the hell of her first love experience. The film comes from Hungary and was created by Vivien Hárshegy and József Fülöp.
