Best of Japan Media Arts Festival award winners

One of the pleasures of film festivals, whether you’re watching them or organizing them, is in discovering unintended themes in the films.

Sometimes it’s inevitable, such as when social or political issues are on everyone’s mind, but these are so unsurprising as to almost be banal. It’s the small, quirky and sometimes trivial themes that are the most interesting to discover, and last year’s award-winning short animation offerings from the Japan Media Arts Festival has a few worth mentioning.
