Cinanima Founder Antonio Gaio Dies at 90

António Gaio, director of Portugal’s Cinanima International Animated Film Festival of Espinho for more than 35 years, died last week. He was 90.

Gaio took over the festival in 1980 — five years after the country restored democracy after years of rule under fascist dictator António de Oliveira Salazar and — and set about making it an internationally recognized event.

In 2000, he published a book titled History of Portuguese Animation, and in 2012 he was honored at the Centro Multimeios of Espinho.
