MIAF introduces its new ‘Technique Focus’ Competition screening. This year the technique to focus on chose itself. ‘Hand Painted’ animation is a method which produces some of the most sublime animation you will experience and some of the true masters of this technique have recently released some stunning films. Hand painting thousands of oil paintings onto thousands of pieces of glass, hardboard or card is a breathtakingly painstaking way to create the 24 frames you need for every single second of film but the results often can be described as akin to breathing an invisible life into a textured surface of oil paint. On the big screen, the sheer beauty of this work and the magnitude of the effort involved in creating it will be a highlight of the festival.

We have secured films by some of the living masters of this form including Alexandre Petrov’s “My Love” (truly sublime), Georges Schwizgebel’s “Jeu” (an amazing cavalcade of perspective bending improbabilities) and Florence Miailehe’s “Urban Tale” (beauty brought to an unlikely parade of urban images).

The films in this program are all recently released and are all in competition. To compliment this focus on new hand painted animation we are also planning a retrospective of the finest hand painted animation created over the years.

Line Dance
Emily May
UK, 3'00

A simple enough idea. A graceful, ever changing black line seemingly dancing off the end of a paint brush just out of the frame.
The Train
Goran Stojnic
Croatia, 8'30

The trajectory of a train and the ever changing scenery from the carriage window fuse into an ebbing & flowing kaleidoscope.
Paint
Nancy Parczyk
USA, 1'30

A film that unashamedly revels in the very material that it is created in.
Destiny Manifesto
Martha Colburn
USA, 8'00

Taking a different tack, this piece of commentary uses rapidly hand painted imagery to paint over photographs of bygone eras (and errors).
Urban Tale
Florence Miailehe
France, 15'30

Feel the force of every brush stroke, immerse yourself in a pallette of an artist unafraid to cover the screen with big colours, follow the wild cat on it’s stroll through an urban landscape.
Jeu
Georges Schwizgebel
Switzerland, 4'00

The latest masterpiece from a filmmaker whose sense of perspective and ability to roam through an ever twisting, turning mindscape is unparalleled.
My Love
Alexander Petrov
Russia, 26'00

And from the master of oil paint on glass films comes this visual extravaganza of colour and style. Petrov’s ability to use oil paint to create oceans, cloth, moving scenery and to engender a kind of ethereal movement into his characters is awe inspiring. A kind of modern Russian fairy tale is the simplest way to explain what may be the richest, most beautifully crafted oil painted film ever made.


Admission is restricted to 18+
IMPORTANT: Film classification regulations do not allow us to admit any person under the age of 18 years EXCEPT to the Kids Program, Teen Program, Roger Ramjet & Careers in Animation Forum.
