Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

PLASTIC PAPER: WINNIPEG'S ANIMATION FESTIVAL started in 2008 as a mini-program hosted by the Winnipeg Cinematheque before branching out into an independent event. The event is a mix of premieres, retrospective screenings, short films and features with special guests, workshops, Artist talks, parties and more. Although some programming is kid-friendly, PLASTIC PAPER is not a children's festival: many of the featured works come in a variety of animation styles (with a preference for 2D drawing and stop-motion) with sometimes challenging subject matter. PLASTIC PAPER is presented by the same people who put on the CINEMUERTE INTERNATIONAL FANTASTIC FILM FESTIVAL and BIG SMASH! MUSIC SCENE.

About PLASTIC PAPER:

PLASTIC
PAPER
started in 2008 as a mini-program curated by Kier-La Janisse
and Dave Barber, and hosted by the Winnipeg Cinematheque before
branching out
into an independent event. PLASTIC PAPER
2008
featured the Manitoba premieres of Bill Plympton's IDIOTS
AND ANGELS
, Nina Paley's
multi-award winning SITA SINGS THE BLUES,
John Bergin's apocalyptic FROM INSIDE
and much more. Special guests have included BILL PLYMPTON, HEATHER HENSON and curator NAOMI HOCURA.

PLASTIC
PAPER
is unique in Winnipeg as an event
that serves to explore the animated output of different regions and
cultural
communities around the world. With an emphasis on self-made work and a
careful
balance of accessible and experimental animation styles, PLASTIC
PAPER’s
presentation and outreach offerings serve to educate,
enlighten and
inspire Winnipeg’s burgeoning roster of independent animators, who will
benefit
greatly from the international programming as well as personal
interaction with
visiting international filmmakers.

Many of
the featured
works come in a variety of animation styles with sometimes challenging
subject
matter; although some films are kid-friendly, PLASTIC PAPER is
mainly geared towards adult animation fans as well
as animators themselves. The programming is widely eclectic, but shows a
preference for independently-financed films, films with an adult
sensibility,
and films using traditional methods of animation, such as 2-D
illustration,
cut-outs and stop-motion. The festival also showcases films about animators
or illustrators, as well as puppetry films.
The
connecting thread in the programming is that all selections celebrate
the
labour-intensity, the obsessiveness, and the unique personalities of
these very
hands-on crafts.
