28. 11. – 2. 12. 2023
AnimatekaPRO is a festival platform where you can learn about the latest trends and topics in the world of animated cinema through a series of masterclasses, panels, presentations and Q&As. This year’s programme provides an in-depth insight into the creativity of acclaimed animation filmmakers, including this year’s artist-in-residence Gianluigi Toccafondo, and members of the 2023 festival jury: Dahee Jeong, Nikki Schuster, Naomi van Niekerk, and Alexandra Ramires. In her masterclass, the latter is joined by her colleagues from BAP Collective, Portugal. The curator Chris Robinson joins us to tell us more about the collage retrospective, while the Animation Festival Network (AFN) is with us to introduce its latest programme of animated shorts by female and female-identifying filmmakers, AFN Presents: That’s What She Said. You can also learn more about the production process of White Plastic Sky, and about regional works in progress – this year, we are especially proud to present three projects from Slovenia! Last but not least, join us for the second edition of ‘Rise & Shine’, a pitching lab and competition for projects in development by young talents!
