Animation Festival

The Prix Ars Electronica’s Animation Festival in the OK Offenes Kulturhaus Oberösterreich provides insights into what’s happening behind the scenes in computer animation and showcases the latest currents in the field. After being launched at the 2005 Ars Electronica Festival, the Animation Festival quickly established itself in Ars Electronica’s starting lineup. This year, it’s even being exported and screened simultaneously in Linz, Vienna and Kiev.

Festivalgoers will get to see this year's greatest hits from the Prix Ars Electronica’s Computer Animation/Film/VFX category along with many other great features. More than 500 films—big-budget Hollywood productions, extremely imaginative commercials and shorts, experimental videos and individual graphic/motion picture miniatures—were submitted for prize consideration to the 2007 Prix. These works illustrate the whole multi-cultural bandwidth of contemporary narrative filmmaking.

Ars Electronica Animation Festival

The works submitted to the 2007 Prix Ars Electronica came from 63 countries. Films were entered by industry pros as well as artists and students from around the world. These are films that tell their stories in very individualized ways that are well-suited to the medium being used; works that cast a spotlight on our society, or entertain us in an intelligent way and thereby demonstrate the power of illusion of motion pictures. From almost 1,500 curators of the 2007 Ars Electronica Animation Festival have put together 10 programs that, for the first time, will be screened simultaneously to interested, curious and open audiences in Linz, at the Museumsquartier in Vienna and in our partner city, Kiev.
