We’re featuring some of Australia’s leading animators on our homepage to coincide with two animation events in Melbourne this month.
The 12th Melbourne International Animation Festival screens over 400 films from 30 countries, including a strong selection of local work. Garth Nix’s award-winning The Missing Key (2011), his prequel to Hello (2003), is on the program. There’s a workshop on hand-drawn animation with Lee Whitmore and a 'fireside chat’ with, and tribute to, animation pioneer Alex Stitt.
The festival is on from 17–24 June at ACMI. For program and booking details, see the MIAF website.
The 24th Society for Animation Studies Conference follows after the festival, and runs from 25–27 June at RMIT University. Animation practitioners and academics will give presentations on animation history, theory and practice.
For more information, see the Society for Animation Studies Conference website.
You can now find more than 100 animation titles on ASO, ranging from short films to television programs, advertisements, documentaries and feature films.
