Multivision Festival 2017 has selected Labour of Loaf and Odd One Out for the ‘Student and Graduation Films’ competition, which means they also get to compete in the Main Competition.
Multivision has been taking place in St. Petersburg, Russia, since 2003. This year’s festival will begin on the International Animation Day, 28 October, and will last until 20th November.
The festival program will explore the latest developments in international animation, animation’s influence on other artistic practices and the synthesis of animation art with other visual and performance arts. The festival also features a special competition of animated video installations.
During the summer the festival hosts a selection of open-air screenings. The festival program is projected onto a giant 400 square meter screen attached to the drawbridges on the Neva River in the center of St. Petersburg. The free open air screening of the competition program gathers more than 30,000 spectators and is an excellent opportunity for shorts filmmakers to show their work to a large audience.
Good luck everyone!
