Marta Pajek, Rosto, Paul Bush among those selected at the 3rd edition of the Finnish fest.

The third edition of Turku Animated Film Festival received 882 submissions for its International Competition. Ultimately 45 animated shorts from 25 countries were selected to compete for the Grand Prix worth €1,000.

We received nearly 900 submissions from all over the world. The independent animated film is definitely flourishing in Europe, and we’re delighted to see as many as 20 student films in the competition. Declaring the winners will not be an easy task -Joni Männistö, TAFF Artistic Director

The films chosen for the competition include fresh works from seasoned filmmakers, such as Rosto, Georges Schwizgebel and Paul Bush, Grandpa Walrus by Lucrece Andreaen, The Burden by Niki Lindroth von Bahr and III by Marta Pajek.

The Panorama series consists of 15 fine films from professional filmmakers and 3 student films, whereas the Fresh From Finland screening presents the latest of Finnish animated shorts. In addition, there’s a selection of animated music videos, a screening of animated documentaries, and three TAFF Junior screenings aimed at kids and youth.

The International Jury is formed by directors Réka Bucsi, David Buob, and Igor Prassel, festival director of International Animation Film Festival Animateka.
