It’s the first time in Kosovo for Georges Schwizgebel, and of course he is here for Anibar International Animation Festival, to expose its 46-year experience to those who are interested in animation. Georges Schwizgebel films are swirling journeys through space and time as we move in real time. His films have won him many awards that have made him known all around the world of animation and beyond: ”Best Short Film” on Swiss Film Prize, while with ”Romance”, a co-production of the National Film Board of Canada and two Swiss studios, was one of five animated shorts nominated for the 32nd Genie Awards, he won the award for ”Best Animated Short”.
George Schwizgebel will have his first appearance for the public of the festival and Kosovo with his 16 artworks at his exhibit in Peja Art Gallery which will be open from the 15th of August and it will remain open until the end of the festival. This year the master of animation will honor us with his presence as a Grand Jury member for the competition categories, and his retrospective on August 19th which includes a screening of his films and a presentation on his work.
