Animation has the power to put on the screen the situations and emotions which no camera can capture. This makes its combination with the documentary form a perfect medium to discuss sensitive issues. The programme of best animated documentaries of this festival season demonstrates that what seem as incompatible genres, when combined, produce an even more powerful result.
In this year’s series Animated Documentaries I and Animated Documentaries II, we have collected 12 short animated documentaries that address a variety of topics: political, cultural, anthropological, fates of individuals and much more.
More about the films in the programs:
We invite you to watch the sections on our online platform, and at the same time we invite you to watch the talks with the authors of short animated documentaries in these sections, led by film critic Veronika Zakonjšek and Animateka programme director Igor Prassel.
