3 feature films in the competitive section of Be there! Corfu Animation Festival, among them an Oscar-nominated film.

The second edition of Be there! Corfu Animation Festival (29 March-1 April 2012) presents its feature lineup for the competitive programme. The recently Oscar-nominated (and César-nominated) film noir Une vie de chat (A cat in Paris) narrates the unusual story of Dino the cat in his Paris adventures.

Jez Jerzy (George the Hedgehog) is a raucous satire of Polish morals and conformist ethics that explode when the promiscuous George seems to escape every state control.

Fat, Bald and Short Man by Carlos Osuna is a tender comedy that has a 46-year-old accountant view life in a different way. 

See the full film lineup:


  • Jez Jerzy | George the Hedgehog, dir. Wojciech Wawszczyk, Jakub Tarkowski and Tomasz Leśniak (Poland 2011, 90')
  • Une vie de chat | A cat in Paris, dir. Jean Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol (France 2010, 65')
  • Gordo, Calvo y Bajito | Fat, Bald and Short Man, dir. Carlos Osuna (Colombia 2011, 91')
