Launched last year, DOCartoon is ‘the first festival in the world to be primarily dedicated to animated documentaries and non-fiction comics’. A mix of short and feature-length animadoc films, meetings and exhibitions takes place in the old Tuscan town of .Pietrasanta, between seaside and mountains, where Michelangelo would stop after choosing the marble blocks who would work on. No competition, no awards but a good selection of quality feature and short animated documentary films, encounters with artists, events and art exhibitions in the best locations in town.
There’s a Call for Entries on the home page for the this year’s event, to be held in October. Check it out:
