#sofascreening talks are now online
From 21 to 26 April 2020, we organised a digital substitute programme instead of the originally planned festival week. As part of it, three Instagram Live Talks were held with the animation artist Nikita Diakur (Jury National Competition and trailer FFDD20), the men's researcher Christoph May (Jury Gender Diversity FFDD20) and the artistic director of the Kaboom Animation Festival Aneta Ozorek (curator Animation Programme FFDD20).
We have now subtitled the material (in German) and present you all three talks on our YouTube channel. Have a look!
Nikita talks in this short interview among other things about his work on our FFDD20 trailer and gives insights into his animation technique.
We chatted with Christoph about his jury work for our festival, male stereotypes in short and feature films and what has to change in order to have more cliché-free films.
Aneta guided us into the colourful world of animation film, glowingly recommended her favourite films and reflected on the effects of COVID-19 on film festivals.
