You have an appointment with ANIMA at Flagey from 9th to 18th Feb. 2018!
Every year at this time, the ANIMA programmers are busy looking at the best finished or still-in-production animated gems to present you the cream of the crop from all over the world at Flagey from the 9th to 18th February 2018.
In addition to the major events for young and old alike, the 37th ANIMA Festival has chosen to spotlight the work of Estonia, a particularly prolific country in terms of animation. Estonian animators will be given pride of place in a special focus presenting programmes of films for children and adults, as well as an exhibition dedicated to the famous Nukufilm studio, a retrospective of work by filmmaker Priit Pärnand a programme of school films presented during FUTURANIMA.
Alongside all that, ANIMA will also be the place for discovering the latest advances in virtual reality with the VR- EXPERIENCE. Groups of 10 visitors will be able to don their 'oculi' (headsets!) for a total immersion 360° experience into this distinctive world. Sensations guaranteed!
The visuals for Anima 2018 are the work of illustrator and filmmaker Noémie Marsily and musician, animator and videographer Carl Roosens.
This hyper-creative duo have a lot to offer, as can be seen in their latest very impressive short film "I Don't Feel Anything Anymore" that recounts the trials and tribulations of a pair of lovers, who live isolated in a crane basket, and their attempts to make themselves useful in a world in turmoil.
They have a number of other films made together, including the multi-awarded "Autour du lac".
