It has been 100 years since directors in Europe first made puppet animation films. The Polish animator Władysław Starewicz, who used dead insects and animal figures for his stories and fables, is widely regarded as a pioneer in the field.
Other filmmakers like Alexander Shiryaev, George Pal or the Diehl brothers also left an indelible mark on puppet animation in its early years. The experts on this panel discussed the evolution of puppet animation from its beginnings to the present day, looking at trends and political influences and exploring technical advancements all the way up to digital films.
