Anima, the Brussels International Animation Film Festival will take place from 13th to 22nd February 2015 in Flagey.
Part of the programme will also be shown in other theatres in cities around the country like Liege, Charleroi, Mons,
Namur, Ostend, Antwerp, Leuven and Ghent.
The Anima Festival will once again serve as a wonderful showcase for animation with nearly 300 films from all around
the world. Exclusive previews, national and international competitions of short films and features, conferences with highprofile
guests, workshops and initiation sessions for kids are already planned for the upcoming edition.
Anima will be especially turning the spotlight on productions from Latvia and The Netherlands, two countries that are
extremely prolific in the animation field. The first hovers between its highly gifted masters of puppet animation and a
young generation with radically different styles and concerns. The second is full of young talents and studios constantly
at the forefront of new trends. Work from Dutch film schools will also come under focus.
Anima will also take the opportunity to show off films from Belgian animators working abroad. The stop motion animation
specialist, Kristien vanden Bussche will talk about her experience at the Laïka studios and her work on The Boxtrolls.
Former student of KASK, Marlon Nowé emigrated to the United States and is currently at the Walt Disney Animation
Studios, where he has worked on such big hits as Rapunzel, Wreck-It Ralph, The Snow Queen, and the studio’s latest:
Big Hero 6. He will give a Masterclass during the Futruanima professional days that will take place from 18th to 21st
February. More info on our website soon.
You can also discover this year’s Festival poster on the website in the “Press” section. The poster was created by Swiss
artist François Chalet. Illustrator, animation filmmaker and visual artist since 1997, François Chalet gives conferences on
the art of animation and his extensions (contemporary dance, VJing, installation). He came to Anima last year to present
his work. In return the Festival has decided to entrust him with the creation of its poster and the design of Flagey during
the event. Watch out!
