After the festive start of the ANIBAR Animation Festival on Tuesday evening the festival continues to have exciting programs designed for all ages on its 4th day.
Today the ANIBAR KIDS PROGRAM features 5 short films by the renowned animator Michel Ocelot. Michel lives in Paris but his films reflect the early years he spent growing up in Africa and are visually stunning. ANIBAR FOR KIDS features a different program every day at 12:00 in the Istref Begoll Theatre.
After the screening ANIBAR FOR KIDS gives youngsters aged 10 to 14 the opportunity to try their hand at animation under the guidance of a professional animator. No previous experience required so come join the fun at 13:00 in the Istref Begoll Theatre
For the older audience THE FAMILY TIES program at 16:30 in the Kino Jusuf Gervalla presents a program that examines the many sides of family life. The films will touch on a wide range of emotions and you will leave the theatre thinking about them.
If you have ever been curious about how stop motion puppet animation is created come to the Kino Jusuf Gervalla at 18:00 and learn the secrets of the art from two masters of the art. Max and Ru have come from America to share the secrets of their art. If you really want to know more about how to make stop motion puppet animation plan to attend Max and Ru’s workshop this weekend.
ANIBAR moves to the lovely outdoor Kino Lake for a program of short animated films from around the world. As an added bonus you can even watch the films while paddling around the lake in rubber boats. In case of rain the program will move to Kino Jusuf Gervalla.
At 23:30 the fun moves to the party area close to the lake for late night dancing to Por-No and Eho.
See you at the movies!
