Animation Film Festival "ANIMATED DREAMS"
23 - 26 November 2006
Beware, your dreams have been animated!
"Animated Dreams" became reality in 1999 when then two-year-old
Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival decided that Estonia - the country
of 'a little big nation of animation' - was in need of its own animation
film festival. Since the beginning, animation films have drawn hordes
of audiences as they are being screened before main features.
During these past seven years, "Animated Dreams" has developed
into independent showcase of animated cinema. International competition
programme is judged by an international jury of animation specialists.
We also present retrospectives of a filmmaker, genre or studio, focus
on a country and an overview of new Estonian animated films.
The guest list of "Animated Dreams" is remarkable. We have
been fortunate to welcome various animation filmmakers, critics and
historians - Bill Plympton, Giannalberto Bendazzi, Heikki Jokinen,
Adam Benjamin Elliot, Phil Mulloy, Michaela Pavlatova, Chris Robinson
etc, not to mention numerous renowned animators from Estonia.
The best film of the competition will get Grand Prix - Wooden Wolf.
The jury also names the best story and the best design. For international
competition films, the festival invites the director as its guest,
covering the accommodation in Tallinn for 3 nights.
Eligible films for competition should be:
§ premiered after 1 January, 2005
