Focus on Slovenia: From Weasel to Nighthawk
3. May 2021, 0:00 - 16. May 2021, 0:00
The Slovenian animation scene has started to grow in the last 15 years. Despite the difficult circumstances and the lack of systemic support on the national level, we have observed a surge of quality author voices and the emergence of a number of animation studios whose animated shorts and series are achieving international acclaim and awards. In this programme we are presenting a collage of the works of contemporary, acclaimed authors such as Špela Čadež, Dušan Kastelic, Leon Vidmar, Timon Leder and others.
