Ars Electronica Animation Festival
Friday Session II

13:30 - 14:30: Prix Selection: Small World Machines:
The world as a fantastic machine whose mechanism does not always obey laws we are capable of grasping. The inhabitants of it are sometimes grains of sand and sometimes tiny gears. A mix of poetic, absurd and occasionally furious miniatures.

16:00 - 17:30: u19 - freestyle animation
Participants in the Prix Ars Electronica’s annual competition for young people show how it’s done. The choice of tools and media is open—ya know, freestyle computing, just like it sez. And the stuff these talented young animators and up-and-coming directors have come up with is really cool. This 2006 “best of” lineup was curated by Sirikit Aman.

18:30 - 20:00: Prix Selection: Exquisite Monsters:
The world of computer animation is inhabited by many different species of monsters—friendly ones and menacing ones too, those that are mechanical, animalistic and human. The computer becomes a genetics lab in which the engineers’ inventiveness knows no limits.

21:00 - 22:30: Japanese Animation:
Visual imaginativeness and unconventional narrative forms characterize animation made in Japan. This program curated by the Japan Media Arts Festival showcases a cross-section of artistic productions from recent years.

23:00 - 24:00: Prix Selection: Late Night:
A program for night people with a dark sense of humor: offbeat situations, stirring flashes of inspiration and trashy aesthetics assure a thoroughly tolerable chill-out.
