For it's 5 incarnation, VOFF is celebrating the art of the animated short with the theme of 'Animated Worlds'.

The site is hosting a whopping 170 animated shorts from 37 different countries. Until March 28th viewers can help narrow it down to a short-list of 10 which will go on to compete for the prize of $50,000. The ultimate winner will be decided by the Jury which consists of (voice actor) Yuri Lowenthal,  Samantha Youseff (animation director), Athena Yvette Portillo (producer), Christophe Vacher  and Michael Schlingmann (animators) .
