SHORTS FOR KIDS 5 & UP: ROUFF
Filmfest 2019

Rouff, a dog sketched by comic-book artist Stan, is sad. He has only three legs and is alone. But then he pulls, stretches, and folds Pete from the paper on which he was drawn. It’s the start of a very special friendship and an adventurous journey in search of Rouff’s uncomleted fourth leg, as well as a very special meeting of the two worlds of 2-D and 3-D animated film.
