Animation at DOK Industry

Animation at DOK Industry

Two festival days were dedicated to the art and industry of animated films at DOK Leipzig and DOK Industry 2022.

Get inspired by Špela Čadež at her masterclass, dive into Animation Perspectives with Veneta Androva and Tang Han and discover a wide variety of animation in numerous film screenings including the Slovenian animation programme. A panel organised together with the German Animation Association discusses distribution opportunities. At “Animation Meets Docs” you’ll have the opportunity to network with colleagues from the animation and documentary sectors and celebrate at the Get Together kindly hosted by many partners active in the animation scene.

Slovenian Animation. The Conquest of Poetic Space

Ever since the turn of the millennium, Slovenian animation film art has seen an enormous boom. Funding programmes enable and encourage a new generation of animation filmmakers to realise their poetic, original visions – and leave their distinctive marks on filmdom. We follow them, animated and inspired.

Animation Perspectives: Veneta Androva_Tang Han

Veneta Androva and Tang Han are invited to engage in a cinematic and personal dialogue. Animation and documentary, nature and culture, the virtual and the real rub against each other in their works. Two radically different artistic styles, and yet they have something in common: precision in watching, consistency in thinking and a delight in playing with ironic distance.

Dancing in the Dark. Hysteresis & Company

Body, camera, movement, projection: Around Robert Seidel’s “Hysteresis”, a short history of moving image production unfolds that makes technology and sensuality dance partners in the dark cinema space. It spans from the brothers Lumière to Len Lye to today, culminating in a live performance with dancer Tsuki to sounds by Oval.
