5 LISAA films selected at the Anim!Arte Festival de Rio de Janeiro
This year, five projects made by LISAA Animation & Video Games Paris students have been selected for the Brazilian festival Anim!Arte. Every year, this event presents international short animated films made by students from around the world.
Anim!arte—an international festival
From Ireland and Bulgaria, to Spain, Japan, Turkey, Portugal and Iran—for 18 years, the Anim!Arte festival has been showcasing the work of students from all around the world.
Every year, the Brazilian festival presents short films made by young talents for a young audience. It aims to boost artistic knowledge and curiosity among young people to create and produce animated films.
Over the course of ten days, visitors can attend conferences led by animation professionals, as well as attending exclusive screenings, workshops and exhibitions.
This year, for its 15th edition, Anim!Arte has selected five films produced by LISAA animation school—great recognition for these students who have now graduated.
