http://www.pisaf.or.kr/
https://www.facebook.com/pisaf.ani.3

Date: Oct 22, 2014 - Oct 26, 2014

 About the event:
In 1999, the Puchon International Student Animation Festival (PISAF) embarked on its journey as the sole animation festival in Asia dedicated solely to students and has since earned high marks for the quality of its selections. PISAF has also committed itself to becoming a venue in which to introduce animations created by animators from home and abroad and nurture new talents in the digital content industry. The festival’s central program is its International Student Competition, which is designed to discover young and promising new talent in animation and showcase their work. There are two categories: Short Animated Films (less than 30 minutes) and New Media Content, which can include many different formats such as Internet/web, Mobile-based, stopmotion graphics, interactive animations and etc. In 2011 over 1,200 films from all over the world were submitted to PISAF.

Along with the competition, PISAF offers many opportunities for young animated filmmakers to meet masters of the cartoon and animation world. In 2011, Disney animator John Musker, director of The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules and The Princess and the Frog have been featured. PISAF has played a major role in creating a network linking animation festivals worldwide through its collaborations with film fests in Annecy, Ottawa, Hiroshima, Zagreb, and the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film. The festival also offers a cartoon and animation experience program to attract interested audience members. The program is also aimed at exposing the ways that cartoons and animation can help develop creativity across a variety of fields. PISAF hopes to see more people enjoying cartoon and animation in the future.

PISAF 2014, the festival’s 16th edition, will be held on October 22-26 with screenings, an animation fair, an educational convention and a variety of other special events.

I Am So Into YOU

user
Over the years, I'd had it. Having worked/volunteered for film festivals for more than a decade, it became increasingly clear that a cancer had reared its ugly head. The observation I made was nothing short of sycophant society hell bent on being seen and/or canoodling with some celebrity. To me, these over-stuffed bras, deluxe Botox, label wearing women and men show up at events like ugly girls accompanied to the prom by a paid-off neighbor. Everyone knows, but no one says anything. I don&...

A Lifestory

Director: Nacho Rodríguez.

'A Lifestory' is an animation based upon 'The Hymn of the Pearl', a poem from the second century AD. We've remade it into a surreal journey starring a space cat. The original poem is considered epic or mystical, we were drawn to it by its archetypical side, by its universal elements which can be found in everyone's psychology: the depart from the family home on a mission to realize our own destiny in a strange land, falling into sleep, forgetting the origin, then being rescued by our most intimate memory, to finally go back home.

Trenton Film Festival

Trenton Film Festival screens new, cutting-edge film of various genres from around the world, offering filmmakers the opportunity to interact with audiences and connect with other filmmakers at various stages in their career. Located half-way between New York City and Philadelphia, Trenton is a small city with easy access to one of the largest film markets in the world, yet intimate enough to give new film exposure that might be hard to achieve in a larger place or festival.

Trenton Film Society returns in 2014 after a 5 year hiatus, during which time the Trenton Film Society developed several other events including the Trenton International Festival--coming up 4/4-4/6/14. We are particularly excited to return to our roots to produce what was our signature event, the Trenton Film Festival.

How Pixar Changed Disney Animation from Within - Ed Catmull Talks Creativity

CBC.ca When Disney bought Pixar eight years ago, the Mickey Mouse creator was coming off such lows as the non-hit Chicken Little. That made it critically important for Pixar, which had a string of hits such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo, to maintain its own creative culture, nurtured under tech genius Steve Jobs and creative director John Lasseter. But the turnaround the merger wrought on Disney’s animation house was the real surprise, says Ed Catmull, now presi...
