GONE TO THE DOGS
When you start scanning the animation landscape, you never know what trends you’re going to find, but this year there was no denying one fact that kept showing up over and over: Animators love dogs. Many of our favourite films this year featured pooches in prominent positions, so here it is, GIRAF’s first official pet pack—plus one selection for the cat people, just in the name of equality.
Of course, not all these stories are upbeat. Dogs make everything better, but the world is a complicated place, and many of these filmmakers don’t flinch from the darker side. Still, sit and stay with us and we promise to fetch some new favourite animations.
