With the backdrop of the first Greek animated feature by Angelos Spartalis, an animated journey "From the Earth to the Moon," and guest staring Paranorman, the 11 year old kid with the protruding ears and psychic abilities, Animasyros is preparing feverishly for the 6th international Festival, in Syros island, on September 26-29.
Dozens of short film that won audiences and critics at international festivals and so many new ones with professional and student signatures take place in the animasyros 6.0 claiming the grand prize of the jury, which this year comprises Nicolas Schmerkin, founder and director of the Parisian art & innovative production company Autour De Minuit, Igor Prassel, Director of Animateka, the international animation festival in Slovenia and George Tsaggari, artistic director of Animafest Cyprus.
Great tributes to European animation festivals at the animasyros 6.0, such as the Canterbury Animafest, the Animateka - Slovenia, the Animafest Cyprus and a hearty Francorama, with tributes to the Ecole Nationale superieure des Artes Decoratifs, Gobelins animation school and Autour De Minuit.
Guest Star of animasyros 6.0 this year is the famous Paranorman, the metaphysician kid who stole our hearts! The film by Chris Butler and Sam Fell tells the adventure of Paranorman who suddenly finds himself faced with a mighty curse of the past, which awakens an army of zombies!
