The animatiefilmfestival Anima stroke from 1 to 10 march for the 38th time down in Brussels. On the program are all together nearly 400 short and feature films from 36 different countries. New this year is that for the first time, a competition dedicated to animated films in virtual reality. The entire program was at a press conference in Brussels Flageygebouw published.
The Belgian co-production “Another day of life” of the Spaniard Raúl de la Fuente and the Pool Damian Nenow, gets the annual mass of animated film. The picture, whose production is partially in the hands of the Brussels studio Walking the Dog, was in Cannes in the official selection will be screened and is based on the eponymous book by Ryszard Kapuscinski. The main character is a Polish journalist who is faced with a terrible dilemma: to choose for quickly finding an or for his personal commitment.
Exit does Anima with Cowboy and Indian that are in “La Foire Agricole” want to go let off some steam at the agricultural fair, but first time with a time machine, their tickets must be found. In between still quite a bit of beauty with, among other things, an homage to Isao Takahata, the 2018 died acclaimed co-founder of Studio Ghibli, and an exhibition dedicated to Paul Bush.
The zoom lens was this year focused on the land of the invincible Gauls who bravely face the filmveroveraars from across the sea: France. Four programs offer under the motto “Blue, White, Red” a wide range of French productions.
In addition to the screenings in Brussels as in previous years, also decentralisaties with, among others, in Antwerp, Ghent, Leuven and Genk. In 2017 knew Anima more than 45,000 movie fans to the rooms, to lure, to expect this year, the organisers at least as good to do.
