A ‘snap shot’ of the contemporary animation
scene in Australia. Each year, the Melbourne International Animation
Festival gathers a collection of recently released films by established
Australian animators and mixes them with films by promising newcomers
to give audiences a feel for what is happening and what the future
of the artform might hold.
This year, there were so many outstanding Australian
entries that we have extended the Australian Panorama out to two
programs. And we’ll be going all out with some sidebar programs
of talks and Q&As. And we’ll be putting a collection of
these films on the road – sending them out all around this
big brown land and around the world.
