The ANIMATOR International Animated Film Festival was held in Poznań on 5–14 July. It is one of the major European events devoted to animated films, which serves as a qualifying event for the Oscars®. As a partner of the Festival, we provided almost 100 metres of fabrics for festival gadgets – hip pouches.
As many as 300 films from all over the world were presented during the 12th ANIMATOR Festival and 50 short films competed for the International Grand Prix – The Golden Pegasus. They were selected from over 1000 films sent from 64 countries, some as exotic as Costa Rica, Cuba, Kuwait, Macau and Martinique.
The first edition of the festival was organised in 2008 culminating the celebrations of 60 years of Polish animated films. Each edition presents films from around the world, including retrospectives, showcases, premieres or rarely screened works of animation pioneers.
This year, together with the event organisers and Studio Kuluza we created extraordinary festival gadgets. They were made using two durable fabrics – the Henry velour and the Helios outdoor fabric. The selected colours match those used in the Festival's visual identification, however their layout is different in each pouch.
