As you certainly all know, AniFest is not over with the end of AniFest (that makes sense, doesn’t it.). AniFest continues throughout the whole year and not only in Czech Republic. Our programme director Pavel Horáček just came back from the Serbian festival Balkanima (read a report at the Institute of Animation webpage), where he presented our selection of young Czech animation called „From Year Zero“ and our executive director Jakub Hora can be right now seen in Bucharest, Rumania at the Anim’est festival, together with the director Fáňa Váša and the Autopohádky exhibition. Anim’est is just full of Czech animation this year – besides the exhibition brought to Romania by united forces of AniFest, Czech Centres and Animation People studio, there’s also Fimfárum in the main competition, screenings of Jiří Bárta‘s and Aurel Klimt’s films or a documentary about Czech animation.
Czech animation scores also a little bit further in the East – „From Year Zero“ is also being screened at the Days of Czech culture in Seoul, where it was brought by our Visegrad Forum coordinator Michal Procházka.
And it doesn’t end up in the East, we’re also going West! We’re heading to Aubenas, France for the festival Les Rencontres de Cinémas d‘Europe (together with a few young Czech authors like Libor Pixa or Aneta Žabková) and before that to Italian Torino for Viewfest.
Now, the most important information comes – don’t forget that in just about a week, animation will overcome Modřanský biograf in Prague! Autopohádky exhibition again, together with three days of screenings of children films, feature films from this year’s competition (Goodbye Mister Christie and Technotise – Edit and Me) and winners of AniFest 2011. Schools of Animation are a matter-of-course at all our events, this one being no exception. For more info, scroll this page down or have a look at Modřanský biograf webpage, where you can also find info about entry fees (which are more or less symbolic and friendly to wallets of any size). We’re looking forward to see you there!
