CON-CAN organizes actual screening events to introduce short movies full of color and passion to the public.
The screening event at Osaka held on May 17th was a huge success and the audience enjoyed the 9 movies introduced.
The 9 movies we screened are the following: “Tolerance”, “200000 phantoms”, “I don't feel like dancing”, “BENDITO MACHINE I”, “The Chamber”, “The Pond”, “Can & Slippers”, “Eramos Pocos” and “DUCK&GOOSE”.

We had a total audience of approximately 30 people, ranging from the age group of 20 to 80 with a mix of genders. They all kindly filled out a survey we prepared after the screening and we received many interesting comments. Since the comments were so intriguing, we would like to share some with the CON-CAN audience and also share with you the pictures we took during the event. In addition, they ranked all 9 movies as well so below is the list of the top three movies with the comments and pictures.

3 most popular movies:
1. DUCK&GOOSE
2. 200000 phantoms
3. Can & Slippers

Audience Comments:
Male/20’s - “It was my first time to encounter themes of war and peace expressed through animation.”
Female/30’s - “I caught a couple of movies on the CON-CAN website but actually watching the movies on the big screen with added comments was 100 times more entertaining”
Male/50’s - “It was my first time to watch short movies. It was a refreshing experience that widened my horizons. I was really able to feel each director’s passion”
Female/60’s - “I usually don’t watch animation but the animated movies I watched today were very enjoyable. I plan on placing a focus on animation from now on.”
Female/80’s - “I personally experienced the brutality and tragedy of war so watching ‘200000 phantoms’ and ‘I don’t feel like dancing’ was a very moving experience. It made me think about how each of us should act to create a peaceful world.”

We would like to send our utmost thanks to the people who attended and all the staff members who made this screening event possible.
