Bukan hanya menyoal animasi serta segala aspek pendukung dan pengaruhnya, LIAF 2019 juga menyoal masalah ekonomi kekinian melalui pemutaran film yang berjudul Happiness Machine. Beberapa animator dan komposer bergabung menyusun karya baru dalam partisipasinya di Austria Klangforum Wien dan Tricky Women Animation Festival. Para kontributor ini diminta untuk melakukan pertimbangan sistem ekonomi kekinian berkaitan dengan Common Social Movement yang didirikan oleh Chritian Felber, ekonom Austria, pada tahun 2010.
