Multicultural Animated Films Festival


The Best of the Melbourne International Animation Festival aims to bring together like-minded people to support visual arts culture in northern Victoria. Initiated and curated by Shepparton based animation artist, Mimi Leung, this exciting event is another first for Shepparton. This event will be offered at the Harder Auditorium on evening of Saturday, 8 October.


Best of the Melbourne International Animation Festival

With the increasing popularity and power of virtual and augmented reality, the skills of an animator are in ever higher demand. Already the majority of mainstream films and TV we see today rely heavily on animated effects. The hugely successful TV series, Game Of Thrones, just became the biggest Emmy Award winner of all time – many of these gained for its stunning use of animated visual effects. This program explores the flip-side of these mega-budget endeavours and looks instead at the world of independent animation which utilises the same concepts and skills as these large scale studio productions.  


To launch The Best of the Melbourne International Animation Festival, director  of Melbourne International Animation Festival, Malcolm Turner will introduce this screening of an hour of short films followed by a twenty minute creation by renowned Croatian film studio, Zagreb Films.”
