Along with the Kinodvor Gallery, where the original drawings for the 2023 Animateka trailer are on display during the festival, and the Silvan Furlan Hall of the Slovenian Cinematheque, where you can see silkscreen prints for the 1999 Venice film festival trailer, the heart of the exhibition of works by the latest Animateka artist-in-residence is in the DLUL Gallery on the right bank of Ljubljanica, featuring original drawings or frames from his animated films Dreamland, To Be Dead or To Be Alive Is The Same Thing, La pista, La coda, The Criminal, and Pinocchio. Almost invariably, Toccafondo uses pre-existing images as a medium for his films, creating flowing forms on their surfaces which bear within them all the magic and poetry of movement. Colour resurrects these images by working on their memory, manipulating and metamorphosing them.
