Top 3 is a bittersweet romantic comedy that takes us along for a ride, following the love story of two highschool sweethearts. Obsessive list-maker Anton falls for bright-eyed, audacious David the moment they meet. Their whirlwind romance matures into a relationship spanning continents, but what do you do when you realise that your dreams and ambitions are in direct competition to those of your soulmate? This gorgeous Swedish animation, in all its kaleidoscopic, psychedelic glory, perfectly captures that feeling when you are in love with someone that you just can’t be with. Created by Sofie Edvardsson, a director and illustrator from Umeå in the north of Sweden, this queer narrative is a visually daring and refreshingly frank story; this is also her debut film.
