The International Competition programs were made up of an eclectic mix of films and offered audiences a complete, up-to-date snapshot of the international creative animation scene. In addition to these were programs was the Australian premiere of The Story of Percival Pilts, a brand new stop motion animated puppet film made in Melbourne by Janette Goodey & John Lewis, and narrated by Mark Hadlow (The Hobbit).
