Studio 1

5.15pm
Animation 102: Nadia Micault (France)  15+
Using a mix of ‘old-school’ and state-of-the-art digital animating technologies, ‘Sonata’ is a masterclass in re-imaging human movement. Micault will discuss what it took to imagine, capture and then recreate the stunning visual imagery depicted in her film.

Nadia will also be presenting at BLEND Symposium

'Sticky': Jilli Rose 6.45pm
BLEND SYMPOSIUM #2: Two Films, Two Visions  15+
JILLI ROSE (AUSTRALIA) and MIRIAM HARRIS (NEW ZEALAND)
presented in association with DEAKIN UNIVERSITY
Two filmmakers working in very different styles but bringing a documentary eye to their projects, will outline how they tackled integrating real people into richly imaginative animated dioramas. Jilli Rose has recently completed ‘STICKY’ which explores a unique element of the insect world and Miriam Harris (NZ) used an unusual photo montage approach in her film ‘WARSAW, JANUARY 2011’ to record a version of her travels in Europe researching her book on historical Czech animation.
'Coffee Nerves New York': Gary Leib 8.30pm
Panorama #2: International  15+
Four programs of ‘must-see’ films that perhaps arrived too late for competition selection, or maybe they had the jury battling it out on the floor(!). Every bit as eclectic and diverse as the International Competition programs, this is an essential part of core MIAF programming. PLUS – the AUSTRALIAN PANORAMA gives local animators one more chance to get their work up on the big screen where it belongs.
Cinema 1
'Ascension': Thomas Bourdis, Martin de Coudenhove, Caroline Domergue, Colin Laubry, Florian Vecchione 6.15pm
International Program #3  15+
A diverse selection of the best new animated short films chosen from 2,900 entries!
MIAF’s international competition sessions are the backbone of the festival and screen almost daily throughout the festival, providing a comprehensive overview of the international indie animation scene.
Chile Imaginario: Claudio Diaz 8.00pm
South American Showcase #2: Stories, Myths & Music  18+
Bold, exuberant and energy to spare are some of the characteristics that make up the DNA of much South American animation. From the essences of lost cultures and the barely exorcised ghosts to retro flavoured ‘homages’, these three distinctly curated programs will deliver a rich brew of the best new works and main trends evident in the indie animation scene from Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Venezuela and Bolivia...

The South American animating community often hone a very visceral edge to their storytelling craft. The essences of lost cultures, the barely exorcised ghosts of more recent political horrors and part documentary investigations of the unique elements of the South American natural environment - are among the more unique elements South American animators bring to the table.
