The 22nd Bucheon International Animation Festival, taking place October 23-27, has announced that this edition’s official poster and festival trailer will be created by Romanian artist Anca Damian, director of BIAF 2019 Grand Prize & Audience Prize winning feature film Marona’s Fantastic Tale. The acclaimed animator has previously won prestigious honors including the Annecy Cristal for Crulic – The Path to the Beyond (2011) and the Animafest Zagreb Grand Prix for The Magic Mountain (2015).
Marona’s Fantastic Tale illustrates the life of a special dog through a fantastically beautiful journey in 2D, 3D and cutout animation. Filled with a warm and loyal heart, Marona’s adventures unfold in a unique space created in different techniques with each of her three masters — especially her days living with an acrobat, when the imagery is ecstatically happy, sensual, lively and stimulating. The film’s ending also enhances the viewer’s aesthetic experience with a harmony of constantly moving scenery, changing scales and lines.
Damian will return to Bucheon this fall as a member of the festival’s feature film competition jury.
