When Nik and I were invited to ANIMATOR 3rd International Animated Film Festival, July 12 through 17th in Poznan, Poland, we were told that it was an animation and music festival. The description doesn’t do justice to the emphasis that the festival organizers place on the marriage of animation and music.
Along with two competition screenings each day and a myriad of special programs, every night there were screenings of animation with live music. There were also two screenings for young people each day and workshops for children of all ages. Because I had the privilege and honor to be on the jury, my days were fully taken up with watching the 82 films in competition and then with jury meetings.
