Among these emerging talents, Argentine animator Nicolás Villarreal is one of the most achieved. His first short "Pasteurized"
(Pasteurizado) premiered in the Shorts Corner at the Cannes Film Festival in 2012 where it got a great reception. His follow-up "Nieta" (Granddaughter), inspired by his relationship with his grandmother, also premiered at Cannes and won an award at Tiff Kids International Film Festival. "Nieta" was among the most talked about short films during the 2014-2015 awards season.
