Anìmator: International Animation Festival

April 16-23

Anìmator, the largest animation festival in central Europe, is held annually in Poznań, one of the oldest cities of Poland and home to a famed animation studio. From the beginning, Anìmator focused on the relationship between music and animation art. Along with competitions, retrospectives, and an academic conference, the  festival is energized with evening screenings set to live music. Internationally known artists and scholars who have recently visited are Czech filmmaker Michaela Pavlátová; British author and curator Jayne Pilling; Giannalberto Bendazzi, author of Animation: A World History; and artists Raoul Servais, Michel Ocelot, and the Quay Brothers. Special thanks to the staff of Anìmator and to the festival’s artistic director, Marcin Giżycki.
