ONE WAY TICKET
Have you ever wanted to just get away?
Do you have a yearning and a wanderlust that sits just below the surface of your everyday?
This programme is your one-way ticket around the world - and beyond. These animated short films in competition will transport you to faraway countries and immerse you in their cultures, take you to outer space and give you a window into another universe. Cross the border of Yorkshire into India to get the next train to Texas. Run for your connecting shuttle flight to outer space and travel to magical worlds that couldn’t be closer to home.
We can’t promise you’ll arrive in one piece!
