A Town Called Panic revels in a silliness that is by turns cerebral, surreal and hilarious. It’s the kind of anarchic fare that will appeal not just to cool kids, but to any adult who has had it with cookie-cutter family-friendly animated films.” – Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post

Come visit A Town Called Panic, with two new, award-winning animated specials from the Academy Award-nominated directors of Ernest & Celestine. With disarming wit and hilarious visuals, A Town Called Panic revels in the simple setup of three plasticine toys sent on increasingly surreal and freewheeling adventures. Cowboy and Indian are always up to some harebrained scheme, with Horse left to clean up the mess.

In The Christmas Log, their out-of-control antics lead Horse to call Santa and cancel the presents. But the boys figure they can still save Christmas… if they break into their neighbor’s house to steal his yule log! (Dir. by Stephane Aubier & Vincent Patar, 2015, Belgium, in English, 26 mins., Not Rated / Suitable for all ages)

In Back to School, a class assignment yields a special prize, but only Pig knows the answer. Cowboy and Indian use a special shrinking potion to try and sneak into Pig’s brain, where they discover a sodium-packed world of pig cops riding in bacon cars and sausage cycles. (Dir. by Stephane Aubier & Vincent Patar, 2015, Belgium, in English, 26 mins., Not Rated / Suitable for all ages)
