Starting from October 28, Moscow will turn into a stage for screening dozens of international animation works, as the Big Animation Festival kicks off in the capital.
The cartoon marathon will not only provide a chance to get to know the latest creations of the world’s best animators, but also offer master-classes and lectures by professionals in this well-loved artform.
This year, the festival’s Cartoon Factory project which in previous years aimed to give schoolchildren an insight into the creation of animated films, is set to broaden its boundaries and host a series of serious educational events for high school students.
Within the framework of the festival program, a "PRO animation" display will uncover the techniques behind the process of making a cartoon. The exhibition will showcase the latest equipment used to bring animated characters to life.
If the event’s track record is anything to go by, this year’s edition of the Big Animation Festival promises to draw thousands and prove a huge hit attracting adults, children and whole families.
The festival will run until November 7.
