Animatricks Animation Festival in Helsinki will be honouring the centenary of Estonia with a screening for children that showcases the long tradition of famous Estonian animation. Some films in the screening are for example from Nukufilm studios that celebrates it's own 60th anniversary.
Estonian animation is famous around the world for it's high artistic standards and it has had a profound effect on animation professionals and students in Finland. Priit Pärn for example has many followers in the finnish animation community.
Estonian animation has it's unique feel and style, a way to use strong metaphores in it's storytelling and challenging the viewer to not fall on the easy straightforward interpretation.
For the aforementioned reason we chose Estonian animation compilation to our screening of animated films to children. We want to provide something to them that is off the beaten path and provides more stimulus to the imagination and brain than the mainstream entertainment animation.
The Estonian animation screenings for children are on the 28th and 29th of April at Animatricks. More details can be found on our website:
