The black-and-white Alois Nebel, the Czech Republic's entry for the 2012 Academy Awards, is described as a “tale about the hallucinations of a lonely train dispatcher at the Czechoslovak border.” The Spanish Academy's Goya Award winner and Annie Award nominee Wrinkles tells the story of “Emilio and Miguel's newly formed friendship at their nursing home and the discovery of new beginnings in the most unusual of places.” In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, “a pirate captain fights his rivals for the 'Pirate of the Year' award.”
