Feral USA / 13min Daniel Sousa and Dan Golden. A wild boy is found in the woods by a solitary hunter and brought back to civilization. Alienated by a strange new
environment, the boy tries to adapt by using the same strategies that kept him safe in the forest.
Get a Horse! USA / 6min Lauren MacMullan and Dorothy McKim. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ innovative new short “Get A Horse!” is a contemporary homage to the first animated shorts
featuring Mickey Mouse, with all-new, black-and-white, hand-drawn animation that’s paired with full-color, 3D, CG filmmaking—in the
same frame. Mickey (voice of Walt Disney), his favorite gal pal Minnie Mouse and their friends Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow
delight in a musical haywagon ride—until Peg-Leg Pete shows up and tries to run them off the road. This groundbreaking short takes
a sharp turn when Mickey finds himself separated from Minnie and must use every trick up his sleeve to find his way back to her.
Directed by Lauren MacMullan and produced by Dorothy McKim, “Get A Horse!” is in theaters in front of “Frozen”.

outside his apartment! The arrival of the dog Robot Pet will turn his life upside down: he has to share his home with this very invasive
