FUTURANIMA, 4—9 March 2019

The Anima Festival's FUTURANIMA professional meetings are set to take place from Monday 4th to Saturday 9th March 2019. These meetings, organized as successive conferences throughout each day, will be hosting many great names from animation.

Illustrated with film extracts, images and sounds, the conferences will be held in Studio 1 of the Art Deco setting of Flagey, and are the perfect opportunity to meet up with the greatest professionals of the moment and get an insight into their production secrets.

We will be delighted to welcome Mark Burton for a screenwriting Masterclass. He is a regular writer at Aardman Animations, including Shaun the Sheep Movie, Wallace and Gromit: the Curse of the Were Rabbit, and the upcoming Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon, along with other screenplays, such as Madagascar. This Masterclass will be led by two Belgian professional screenwriting associations (ASA and Scenaristengilde) and targeted primarily to professional script writers.

We will also be listening to Louis Clichy, who, along with Alexandre Astier, has directed the popular features Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the Gods and Asterix: the Secret of the Magic Potion, and who will be here to share his experience on these two productions.

We have also dreamed of a confrontation between to exceptional talents with great mutual respect for each other: Emma De Swaef for Ce Magnifique Gâteau! (direction) and Kim Keukeleire for Isle of Dogs (animation direction). These two Belgian global specialists in stop motion will have carte blanche to find out everything about each other... and we're certainly looking forward to hearing it all!

Many other exceptional events will also be taking place throughout the week, including a special day for professionals and another one for students: recruitment sessions, meetings and screenings. Industry Day will be kicking of Futuranima on Monday 4th, followed by Student Day on Tuesday 5th March.
