Cinema director. From his wide cirriculum we may point out more than 20
short films, documentaries and periodical programmes for the Portuguese
television. Fernando Lopes obtained his degree in England and has began
his activity in the 60's, as director and editor in RTP. He was one of the
founders of the Portuguese Centre fo Cinema School at the National Conservatory.

stopped. Founder of Filmógrafo, the only animation studio in Oporto.
"Os Salteadores", that got his first prize in CINANIMA 93, has
conquered the world with inumerous international awards. More recently,
"Fado Lusitano", a work commissioned by the late master of British
animation, John Halas, reveals to be another success. He was a member of
the Selection Jury of the International Animation Film Festival Hiroshima
and, now, he will be part of CINANIMA/96 International Jury.
Mr. Back has been awarded worldwide with his films. His cirriculum is so
long that it would be impossible to enummerate so many prizes. However,
we would like to stress the Oscar for best animation film given to "L'Homme
Qui Plantait des Arbres" and "Crac" (this film has been considered
6th among 50 animation masterpieces) and a nomination for the Oscar for
his most recent work "Le Fleuve aux Grandes Eaux", Great Prize
in Annecy and awarded also in CINANIMA.
