Garage Screen. Big Festival of Animation: Animation about Animation Program


Partnering with Russia’s Big Cartoon Festival for the first time, Garage is hosting a special program Animation about Animation exploring the relationship between creators and the images they bring to life.

The Big Brother and Animaholic selections screened as part of the program are primarily for adults, but can be watched by children over 8 and 12 years old respectively.

During the Festival, Garage will also host several animation workshops.

The first animation films exploring the nature and various aspects of animation date back to the very beginning of the genre. These works have not been limited to depictions of the artist’s creative search, but often tell dramatic stories about the relationships between creators and their creations that come to life: the love and conflicts between them; relations of power; the character’s rebellion and coming to terms with his or her dependence; the creators’ realisation of their inability to completely control their creation… Due to its versatility, animation allows the selection of the best and clearest images reflecting on these topics and other issues.  


Dina Goder is the festival curator.


Taking place at several Moscow venues, the twelve-year old annual festival shows animated feature films and shorts, runs workshops for children and adults, and organizes meetings for experts and professionals. The festival’s program contains several selections of the newest Russian and international animation including the winners of other festivals, as well as retrospectives and programs of animation classics.
