Narva Anima Days / Animation Festival & Workshop

Narva Anima Days / Animation Festival & Workshop

Narva Anima Days is a first-time animation festival that includes workshops, film screenings and creative time spent together in the beautiful Kreenholm art residency building in Narva.

FUFF’s (Finno-Ugric Film Fond) goal is to bring together young people who speak either Estonian, Russian or English and offer the opportunity to create animated films cross-culturally. They will create new animations under the guidance of professionals in various workshops and analyze the work of internationally recognized authors.

If you are 16+ years old and want to express yourself creatively (and freely) – then sign up for the festival here: https://forms.gle/euSYWxuz53Du3fLy6

The workshops:

👉🏼 Puppet film (building a puppet with wire inside to animate it) 

👉🏼 Strata-cut animation with modeling clay (cutting layers of plasticine)

The film magic is brought to you by:
