International Animation Festival 2013


Hong Kong Arts Centre is honoured to present the International Animation Festival 2013 as one of HKACS' core programmes. The Festival takes the audience on a journey of animation through time, walking them through all animated works of wonder from all-time classics to new-age surprises. The renowned Japanese anime master Leiji Matsumoto's iconic trilogy Galaxy Express 999 is unprecedentedly brought to local audience. Another programme that focuses on classic works will pay tribute to the late Ward Kimball, the most notable animator among Disney's Nine Old Men.

He is the creator of many of the fantastic Disney animation characters which are now known to almost every household. Moving on from the glorious past, let's brace for the exciting global hits from the new era. First comes the blast of European animated films that not only have been in the limelight at the Academy Awards and the Berlin International Film Festival, but are also award winners at major animation festivals, including the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France and AnimaFest Zagreb in Croatia.

Coming up next is the swirl of Japanese and Korean animation, which thrills the audience with sensational hand-drawn images and even tries their taste buds with stop motion animation made from noodles, while Taiwanese comic artist Jimmy Liao warms audiences' hearts with his soulful and lively work. Meanwhile, there is a featured collection of new-age German animated works, which, with their humourous and reflective style, say no to the traditional tight-laced image of their culture. Local productions are not to be overlooked, of course. Independent short animated films by local talent from ifva Awards and selected works by the Hong Kong Animation Filmmaker Society will also be featured in one of the programmes. This programme will even offer extra sessions especially reserved for disadvantaged youth, children, elderly and people with disabilities. Hands up if anyone has been missed out!
