In this inventive and bittersweet animated rom-com, perpetual list-maker Anton falls in love with David and the two share a globetrotting young romance. But things start to go awry when Anton realizes that his dreams could be in direct opposition to his crush’s. Sofie Edvardsson’s charming and moving tale of miscommunication, idealization, and star-crossed love premiered at Frameline and won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature at Outfest. Presented alongside a variety of animated short films, TOP 3 (AND OTHER ANIMATED TALES) is sure to be one of the most delightfully crowd-pleasing programs in this year’s festival.
