Cate Chereches, who won the 2021 edition of the Animation Incubator - the Animest program dedicated to high school students passionate about animated films, proposes, this year, in the competition her first film Tab ur et, about the rise and fall of life.
Maria Scutaru, the winner of the 2020 edition of the program, who debuts in the Romanian short film section with Three, a 2D perspective on separation, will also be surprising.
Adrian Baluta returns to the competition dedicated to domestic films with 947 - What A Coincidence!, a story from another world, in which nothing is as it seems, and Ioachim Stroe returns with The Clown's Life, a cocktail of 2D, 3D techniques, live action and special effects in which a man is forced to live his whole life as a clown.

The artist's relationship with his own creation inspired Alina Gheorghe in the making of the film Degete de sticla/ Glass Fingers, while Copilul si Uratul/The Child and The Ugly (directed by Victor Andrei-Ionescu) imagines the story from the imagination of a boy, in which the "ugly" ' is the negative character.

The Joy, Bianca Sava's film, is the story of a girl whose normal physical transformations over time attract the ridicule of those around her, the effects of bullying on her transforming, over time, into acceptance and self-love.
