Animation NOW! 2019


The NZIFF’s longstanding animation programmer Malcolm Turner, also head honcho at the Melbourne International Animation Festival, offers a selection of the best and brightest from this year’s Animation NOW! Festival.

Highlights include Per Tutta La Vita and I’m OK, virtuoso examples of just how stunning hand-drawn animation can look; the Jacques Tati turned-up-to-11 CaterpillarplastyEgg, one of the most talked about and awarded films on the circuit at the moment; and two outstanding – and completely different – Kiwi films, Winter’s Blight and Trumpet-Trompette.

If you’re looking to sample the international animation ecosystem in all its multi-coloured, variously shaped glories, there’s no better place to begin. For more details, visit
