Tips for Friday

Beyond animation  - 5:30 and 7:30 at the Puppet Theatre

In the afternoon, the Puppet Theatre will host two interesting lecture-presentations with demonstrations. Puppeteering Pixels, beginning at 5:30 p.m., will be given by one of our jurors Jakub Pistecký, a film special effects specialist, who works for the famous Industrial Light & Magic studio in the US. His presentation will include a peek at the production of the latest instalment of Marvel’s Avengers film series. At 7:30 p.m. Jan Pinkava will give a lecture entitled Interactive Movies Through the Looking Glass. The focus will be on something entirely different – live interactive demonstrations of both earlier and recent additions to the Google Spotlight Stories project.


Animation all'italiana - 3 p.m. in the Schwarzenberg Hall

Take the opportunity to see for yourselves that contemporary Italian production of animated author films lags in no way behind the rest of Europe – on the contrary, Italian films are often original and fresh. The curator Andrea Martignoni will introduce Animazioni 4, a new DVD collection of animated films featuring a wide variety of animation styles.


Psychedelics without borders - 8:30 p.m. at the J. K. Tyl Theatre

Our recommendation for tonight to all the bold viewers who don’t flinch from dark, psychedelic and surreal films is the programme by our juror Rosto. There is nothing like the suggestive films by this independent artist, musician, graphic artist, illustrator, animator and director (music to which he composes himself).
