LIFE IS SHORT AT THE 13TH FIKE INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL - 9 THROUGH 13 June 2015 in Evora, Portugal

The motto of the FIKE International Short Film Festival is “Life is Short”, and the five day festival did seem to literally fly by.  FIKE is a showcase for short live action, animation, and documentary films.  I seldom have the opportunity to see short live action films and so it is a special treat for me.  Watching films coupled with the warm hospitality of festival director Joao Paulo Macedo made it five perfect days for me.

ANIFILM INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF ANIMATED FILMS - Trebon, Czech Republic; 5 – 10 May, 2015

     When ANIFILM International Festival of Films comes to town for one week each year the historic spa town of Trebon becomes the animation capitol of the Czech Republic. The festival combines the best of the new animation with screenings of historic Czech films.  The festival is a puppet animator’s dream, with screenings of films by such masters of the art as Jiri Trnka and Vlasta Pospisilova.  There were even live puppet shows in the park which surrounds the castle in the center of town.
