ITFS at AniNation Jerusalem Filmfestival
7. November 2019, 21:30 - 23:30
Best of International Competition
Along with the two award-winning films, the programme presents further highlights of the ITFS19 International Competition for animated shorts. The selected films cover a wide range of styles and topics. In “Selfies“”, Claudius Gentinetta launches an impressive, artistic firework of disturbing self-portraits, reflecting the everyday madness and abysmal depths of human self-presentation. “Animals”, the winner of the Lotte Reiniger Award is a perceptive and analytical observation of human behaviour under exceptional circumstances. With concise 3D caricature images, Tue Sanggaard depicts the transformation of allegedly civilised subway passengers into wild animals driven by instinct. And the Grand Prix winner “Bloeistraat 11” is a delicate portrait of two girls, best friends transitioning from childhood to puberty. The airiness and transparency of the character animation reflects both the light-heartedness of childhood and the fragility of puberty. Instead of dialogues, Nienke Deutz skilfully uses the language of the girls’ bodies to illustrate their changing relationship.
