The three-night extravaganza of this year's most astonishing animated shorts continues on Saturday. Selected from a record-breaking pool of 1400 submissions, each night's anthology of films stands alone, with a different line-up of cinematic gems from around the world.

Here's some of what you'll see on Saturday night: In a modern city whose citizens are all legendary figures from Greek myth, Medusa ventures into the realm of dating and a kindly cyclops helps a young minotaur find his way home. During the great Pacific War, a native of the Papua coasts creates a new ritual to win the benevolent protection of a powerful, American-built airplane god. A gentle-natured woolly mammoth who was frozen in time struggles to reintegrate into the world of modern elephants. Two cosmonauts, inseparable best friends from childhood, train to make their shared dream a reality—a dream that refuses to die, even when all seems lost.

(Includes 33 films. Two intermissions. Some mature themes.)
