CEE Animation Workshop is a year-long project development and production skills advancement programme for professionals. For the second edition, filmmakers from low production capacity countries could apply with animated projects of any format (short, TV, features, hybrid) in development. The call was also open to a limited number of participants without projects, representatives of industry and public institutions.

An animated series for kids in which animals with and without disabilities get into absurd and comical situations that arise from poor communication and a lack of understanding about the lives and needs of others.
