Forgotten Animators Rediscovered
Světozor Cinema, 5:00 p.m.
This year’s Anifilm maps the works of Czech female directors who made one, two, or rarely more author films in the 1960s-1980s, and then, for various reasons, stopped making animated films. You’ll get a unique chance to meet some of them at a moderated discussion that will follow the screening block entitled Forgotten Czech Female Directors.
3D by the Oscar-Winning Chris Landreth
Světozor Cinema, 9:00 p.m.
Come and meet Chris Landreth, an Academy Award-winning author of original CGI films, and see for yourself that his take on 3D computer animation is completely different from anything you’ve encountered in CG animation so far. This remarkable American author will personally introduce a screening block of his short films, most of which he shot in Canada, this evening.
