Our three-years long Baltic mission is about to end. Although Estonian animation is known mostly because of Priit Pärn, there were and still are many great artist and animation in this country… The programme will cover the production from socialist era as well as contemporary authors, known for their sense for absurd humour and surrealist poetics. Our Estonian retrospective will aslo offer one speciality – the screening of not so well known animated commercials by Priit Pärn. Read more info…
The accompanying programme: Exhibitions
The accompanying programme of this year’s festival is all about puppets – and the exhibitions are no exception – film poet Jiří Trnka in Teplice Regional Muzeum, Estonian puppets and Faruza puppets and decorations in Duchcov castle. And there’s a lot more – the past of Duchcov castle will be made alive in animations by Jan Šrámek and Martin Búřil and Culture House in Teplice will host an exhibition of original illustrations and interactive digital version of experimental comic-book by Matyáš Trnka.

The accompanying programme: Presentations of puppet studios
In the films as well as in workshops and presentations, we are looking for the magic of a film puppet this year. SE-MA-FOR, JPL Studio, Laika and the legendary Mackinnon&Saunders will sheir their secrets with us. More info…
