If ever there was evidence that animation is a lot more than cute kids stories, this fearsome collection of the best truly haunted animated visions is most definitely it. MIAF received almost 2,900 entries this year and a good number of them were screams from the other side, the result of the filmmaker turning the dial to ‘macabre’ and unleashing the powerfully imaginative toolkit that animation offers to explore an almost unimaginable, undefinable series of pathways. Aficionados of the bizarre will revel in this collection of possessed pathways. Close the doors, turn off the lights, buckle in.

Placement Of The Grain
Mitchel A. Kraft
Canada, 2'50, 2013 (NL)
We all know we are living in a cage, we all know larger hands control us and the world we try to navigate, but seeing it writ large in chromium black and white is the stuff of nightmares.

Kreb
Tim Tracey
Canada, 6'30, 2012 (NL)
In a dystopian hall of manufacture where the industrialisation of life raises the spectre of a revolt of hybrids, the one with the knife is not always the most dangerous creature in the frame.

Byul Ju Bu
Suggwon Kim
South Korea, 7'00, 2013 (NL)
What starts out looking like a simple, though garish sex crime, rapidly morphs into a quest for human organs by a colony of creatures who don’t seem entirely sure what to do with them.

La Bete
Vladimir Mavounia-Kouka
France, 8'00, 2013 (NL)
In the shifting shadows deep in a foreboding forest, a woman’s very soul becomes the quarry for the monster the trees camouflage and conceal.

An Errand
Ghim Naheun
South Korea, 3'50, 2013 (NL)
A young boy makes the mistake of entering the grocery store stocked full of the most ghoulish supplies. And yet, the apparently kindly grocer has an option for everything on his list.

The Gate
Matt Westrup
UK, 11'42, 2013 (SL)
Something has gone wrong. Medicines bought online have brought about distinctly unintended consequences and a mess has to be cleaned up. But what – exactly – is the real mess?

Incredulous Voice
Inês Freitas, Miguel Mendes
Portugal, 6'18, 2012 (SL)
“It’s always them, them, them. Can’t you see it’s you”! These interrogators may think they have the upper hand but they have no idea who they are really dealing with.
Leviathan Ages
Jon Yeo
UK, 3'33, 2013 (SL)
The rise of long buried and forgotten stone idols brings on the destruction of everything that previously depended on the accepted laws of physics for their place under the sun.
Sewing Woman
Woo Jin
South Korea, 3'06, 2012 (NL)
Everyone has their job to do, a role that gives them value and helps them make a contribution. The sewing woman however, has been cursed with one the more chilling imaginable.
Moonshine
Michal Poniedzielski
Poland, 10'13, 2013 (SL)
With Toms Waits wail about fighting the devil in the background, a young boy lost in a midnight forest finds himself the prey of everything Lucifer can summons to the chase.


The Maggot Feeder
Priit Tender
Estonia, 15'28, 2012 (Sub)
Drawing heavily from the ancient Chukchi folktale, this is a journey squeezed at great pressure through some of the tightest, most heavily protected cracks of the human psyche.
