Adorable Short Alert: "In a Heartbeat"

Cartoon hearts can break, too. I can't get over this new animated short in which a young boy's heart betrays him at school. And the feeling is apparently mutual on the internet. By the time it took me to post this between watcing it four times last night and waking up this morning to say a few words, it has been everywhere racking up millions of views and inspiring fan art already as well as official parody posters.

See the full four minute short after the jump and a few more comments after the jump. It's well worth your time...

Cannes Prizes Pt 1: Sidebar Glories and Oscar Dreams

Congratulations to this poodle below from The Meyerowitz Stories who won the coveted Palme Dog

The Palme Dog is not an official prize from the festival itself but it's always fun to see who wins. Past years winners have been the utterly adorable bulldog from Paterson (2016), the Maltese from Arabian Nights (2014), Uggie from The Artist (2011) and so on. The Palme Dog people also gave an honorary to the bomb sniffing dogs working Cannes to ensure the safety of the industry professionals attending. 

But wait that's not all. Two of the official Cannes juries also named their winners in advance of tomorrow's main closing night ceremony. Read about them after the jump...

"Dante's Lunch" Dives Into The World of Pixar's Coco

New Pixar shorts are always a cause for celebration – especially after Piper’s Best Animated Short win at this year’s Academy Awards – but their most recent iteration is closer to Ratatouille’s first look of rat-induced restaurant mayhem than a tiny standalone film. Fresh off the heels from their teaser trailer, Dante’s Lunch is a vibrant, bite-sized taste of the world of Coco. It was developed early in the process for Pixar’s newest feature film, which is co-directed by Toy Story 3's Lee Unkrich and first-time director Adrian Molina. Pulsing with color, texture, and streamers of papel picado, the slapstick-laden short explores the Mexico streets we’ll experience later this year in full view but from the perspective of Dante the lucha libre mask-wearing dog, namely his salivated chase through cacti, autumn leaves, and mouth-watering corn with mayonnaise, chili powder and cheese.

Until Coco hits theaters on November 22nd... What’s your favorite Pixar short, teaser trailer or otherwise?
