PLASTIC PAPER: WINNIPEG'S ANIMATION FESTIVAL

PLASTIC PAPER: WINNIPEG'S FESTIVAL OF ANIMATED, ILLUSTRATED + PUPPET FILM is an international festival that takes place May 4-7, 2011 at the Park Theatre in Winnipeg, Canada. The festival is one component of the year-round organizational activities of the Big Smash! Film Collective. PLASTIC PAPER’s programming is a mix of premieres, retrospective screenings, short films and features with special guests, workshops, multi-media presentations, installations and exhibits, artist talks, and gatherings where the artists and the audience can interact more informally.

PLASTIC PAPER is currently accepting submissions for short and feature-length animated films made after Jan. 1, 2010.  THERE IS NO ENTRY FEE. DEADLINE: Feb 1, 2011. Download the entry form at www.plastic-paper.org 

 

About PLASTIC PAPER:

PLASTIC PAPER started in 2008 as a mini-program curated by Kier-La Janisse and Dave Barber, and hosted by the Winnipeg Cinematheque before branching out into an independent event. PLASTIC PAPER 2008 featured the Manitoba premieres of Bill Plympton's IDIOTS AND ANGELS, Nina Paley's multi-award winning SITA SINGS THE BLUES, John Bergin's apocalyptic FROM INSIDE and much more. Special guests have included BILL PLYMPTON, HEATHER HENSON and curator NAOMI HOCURA.

PLASTIC PAPER is unique in Winnipeg as an event that serves to explore the animated output of different regions and cultural communities around the world. With an emphasis on self-made work and a careful balance of accessible and experimental animation styles, PLASTIC PAPER’s presentation and outreach offerings serve to educate, enlighten and inspire Winnipeg’s burgeoning roster of independent animators, who will benefit greatly from the international programming as well as personal interaction with visiting international filmmakers.

Many of the featured works come in a variety of animation styles with sometimes challenging subject matter; although some films are kid-friendly, PLASTIC PAPER is mainly geared towards adult animation fans as well as animators themselves. The programming is widely eclectic, but shows a preference for independently-financed films, films with an adult sensibility, and films using traditional methods of animation, such as 2-D illustration, cut-outs and stop-motion. The festival also showcases films about animators or illustrators, as well as puppetry films. The connecting thread in the programming is that all selections celebrate the labour-intensity, the obsessiveness, and the unique personalities of these very hands-on crafts.

Director: Jaime de Armiñán.
Camila Ponte, a writer of Argentinian origin, is on an exhausting promotional tour for her first novel, a huge success. A mysterious woman, Vega, approaches her after a long and boring press conference and leads her out to a strange establishment, a hotel built over an old convent of franciscan monks. What follows is the story of a kidnapping for which there is neither a ransom asked, nor date of liberation, and on which the victim seems to agree. Camila soon discovers that Vega is not who she seems to be. A complex relationship develops between the two women. One that goes trough suspicion and distrust to love and hatred, from violence to tenderness We will finally learn she is seeking a retribution that will help her heal very deep wound. ¿Who will emerge as a winner? A hint: One of the opponents takes the name of a lady of the night, a vampire who has the habit of feeding on other people’s blood... Camila
