German Animation TONIGHT!!

Culture Night 2010 at the Goethe-Institut

Friday, 24 September 2010, 5-11pm
37 Merrion Square, Dublin 2

Admission free – Animated films

Short & Sweet III – Animated Films from Germany

Film Screenings
What is animation? The term originates from the Latin word “animare” and means “bringing something or someone to life”. When watching the 29 films of the 3 short film programmes He and She, Here and There and Worldly and Otherworldly, one will notice that the featured artists not only bring materials, puppets and paintings to life, but they create worlds that could hardly be more different from each other. The great variety proves that in animated film, the film-makers’ creativity and imagination know no bounds. Opulently designed scenes meet minimalist environments, realistic stories encounter illustrated fantasies.
Moreover, the film programme shows that animated films are not necessarily children’s or family films. While heart-warming and highly peculiar neighbourly incidents are shown in the programme Here and There, surprising universes can be found in Worldly and Otherworldly, and scenarios worth considering or recipes for a happy end in love matters are offered in the programme He and She.

The short films will be screened throughout the night.

An article on Kids Screen by: Wendy Goldman Getzler

http://www.kidscreen.com/articles/news/20100902/everythingsrosie.html?__b=yes&

Everything’s Rosie (El Mundo de Rosie) has landed a spot on CBeebies’ US Hispanic channel alongside a new season of Garth & Bev (El Mundo Mágico de Garth y Bev).

CBeebies will premiere Everything’s Rosie on September 6. Targeting three- to six-year-olds, the new HD CGI animated series chronicles Rosie and her group of colorful friends. Joining Rosie is a new season of preschool series Garth & Bev from Ireland’s Kavaleer Productions that’s set to air on September 20. The series features a brother and sister duo that live in the Bronze Age and can time-travel.

The first season of Garth & Bev, together with the premieres of Nina & the Neurons (June) and Finley the Fire Engine (July), achieved a higher rating than other already established series in the market amongst children ages four to eleven and housewives.

An article from Animation Ireland http://animationireland.com

A Man & Ink’s “Miss Remarkable” premieres in Sweden

Miss Remarkable and her Career, the 30 min short film co-production between A Man & Ink (Ireland), Lisbet Gabrielsson (Sweden) and Bullitt Film (Denmark) premiered in Stockholm on Thursday 2nd September. The 250 strong audience enjoyed the film immensely, with the film receiving great reviews from the critics. The Film is currently playing in 6 cities across Sweden.

Uppsala nya Tidning – 4 stars
“Miss remarkable & her Career shows clearly how good it is to show short films at the cinema, not just at the eminent Uppsala Short Film Festival. This is a well-spent half-hour that offers self-understanding, empathetic laughter and smiles. And perhaps the strength to take hold of her life.”

Expressen – 4 stars
This is a movie for anyone who has ever struggled with performance anxiety and paralyzing self-doubt. That sounds not very uplifting but it is actually.

Hit FM, Stockholm – 4 stars
One of the best I’ve seen in a long time, a humorous, animated films, which no one should miss!

Please see www.missremarkableandhercareer.com for more information about the film.
