Editors Review: 
Anya is a short animated film created by Dublin based production company Brown Bag Films on behalf of the Irish charity ‘To Russia With Love’. The film tells the story of a young girl named Anya as she grows up in a Russian orphanage. The first thing you will notice about Anya is the beautiful animation and The idea was simple; we make an engaging piece of animation. If there is one thing that you can say about Brown Bag Films it is that they have a penchant for creating animated films with distinct and remarkable visual flair. The human character models look great and convey emotion in a realistic fashion, despite their obviously stylised appearance and manage to move about in a convincing fashion. The orphanage in which Anya lives is also rendered in wonderful detail, to the point where it feels like a character unto itself. The film’s musical accompaniment is also something of a treat, bringing additional coldness and warmth to enhance what we see on screen when needed as well as helping the film tell its story with precious little dialogue.
