Still from J. Wallace show film "La Forêt Sauvage"

" Puppets star in theatre but they also star in film. In theatre, we usually see an actor who's animating the puppet (even the word 'animate' is used in both contexts) whereas the film is even more illusory. "

FILM PROGRAM

Animated short films for children and adults

01 /As the festival aims at expanding the limits of puppet theatre, this year we decided to present not only theatre performances but also films – we will, thus, show two programmes of puppet animation dedicated for children and adults. Puppets star in theatre but they also star in film. In theatre, we usually see an actor who’s animating the puppet (even the word ‘animate’ is used in both contexts) whereas the film is even more illusory.

02 /What is puppet animation like? How is it in different countries? What is it like for children and for adults? If you are interested in finding that out come to the screenings and see short animated films from different countries. Don’t hesitate, we guarantee – even the most spoiled viewer will find his or her own cup of tea! You will see plenty of surprising cinematic stories that will reveal vast opportunities of this form of art and, hopefully, will even encourage you to take the camera and experiment on your own.
