ACMI Cinema 2


Comic book art and animation often work the same side of the street. Both use drawings to capture and portray motion. Both often make very inventive uses of the ‘frame’ their images are contained within. The best examples of both normally thrive when their creators unleash their imaginations and unashamedly break through the boundaries and limitations that often restrict other artforms. And both are seriously misunderstood by the wider public.

Some of these films pick up the classic comic book visual style and put it up big’n’bold on the silver screen. Other films are made by animators who are also accomplished comic book artists. And others are animated adaptations of comics or graphic novels. But the bottom line is to showcase the wild, vibrant, sometimes violent – but enormously fun & entertaining - crossroads at which these two amazing artforms meet.
