3 LISAA animated films screened in Taiwan
From Brazil and the USA to Korea and Spain—LISAA films are travelling around the world! And in October, Paris animation school projects are being screened in Taiwan at the Kuandu International Animation Festival.
An acclaimed festival in Taiwan
Founded in 2011 by Taipei National University of the Arts, the Kuandu International Animation Festival is now one of the largest cultural events in the capital of Taiwan, promoting interactions between local and international animation professionals.
Over the seven days of the festival, animated film enthusiasts gather together for conferences hosted by professionals, animation workshops, activities for children and screenings of the films selected for the competition.
This year, the judges have nominated three films made by LISAA Animation & Video Games Paris—great recognition for these former students who have now graduated.
La Baleine, Mon Pompier Chéri & The Golden Lotus selected
Already screened at many film festivals, The Golden Lotus, directed by Hortense Pien, can now count a nomination at the Kuandu International Animation Festival amongst its successes. The animated film sensitively recounts the story of Shuilian and her discovery of the tradition of foot binding. It is nominated in the category of KDIAF'S Choice Films.
The second film to be selected is Mon Pompier Chéri, directed by Houzhi Huang. Also nominated in KDIAF'S Choice Films category, the animated film follows firefighter Ming who is looking for survivors of an earthquake in China. On his way, he discovers a soft toy that reminds him of his childhood.
Finally, La Baleine, directed by Adrien De Massias De Bonne, is nominated in the category of student films. The 3-D animated film tells the story of Italian soldiers attacked while they are at sea.
