Adam Elliot, Special Guest of Anifilm
This year’s Anifilm includes a section dedicated to the most popular Australian filmmaker of today. Adam Elliot won an Oscar for his film Harvey Krumpet and received a number of other prestigious awards for this and other films. He
describes his films as “clayographies” or clay biographies. And clay is the prominent material he uses to tell the peculiar stories of marginalized people who are lonely and often excluded because of some “deviation” from the norm. Anifilm will screen Elliot’s entire short filmography and his, for the time being, only feature Mary and Max. Adam Elliot has kindly accepted our invitation and will be our special guest in Třeboň. Adam Elliot has accepted Anifilm’s invitation and so the festivalgoers can look forward to a special lecture where they will learn how he makes his films.
