The film was also shortlisted by the Academy of Oscars. Per Aspera Ad Astra is his fifth film.

Jossie Malis (1976): He  is a designer, animator, filmmaker and publisher of Peruvian-Chilean origin and director of the studio Zumbakamera Films, sending signals to the outer space from the island of Mallorca (Spain).

His short films have been selected in festivals around the world such as Annecy, Sitges, Cinanima, BAF, Pictoplasma, SICAF or Fantastic Fest, among others, receiving a long list of accolades. His work is an acute commentary on humans and their weaknesses, their machines, their fears and the mysteries of the universe.

Programme Highlights:

  • Visiting Studio: Papy3D  is a production company based in Paris, France founded by a fellowship of animation film directors. As they all had experience in directing animation films, they wanted to create a production company which would allow them to have a better control over their work. Papy 3D are Jérémy Clapin, Gilles Cuvelier, Franck Dion, Sarah Van Den Boom (directors), Pierre Caillet (composer and sound designer) and Richard Van Den Boom (administrator) and Animanima 2019 proudly presents a very special programme of Papy 3D studio.
  •  CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN ANIMATION: Under the title Anime Italiane, curator of the programme Paola Bristot reveals ten excellent films created by Dario Imbrogno, Valerio Spinelli, Mauro Carraro, Ahmed Ben Nessib, Elisa Talentino, Beatrice Pucci, Michele Bernardi, Emanuele Kabu, Francesco Rosso, Andrea Martignoni & Maria Steinmetz.
  • The Bendito Machine Universe: Bendito Machine is a series which in many ways is unlike anything else seen at the world animation scene over the past decade or so, the period during which its six episodes were produced. Ironically titled All that you need, Obey his commands or Pull the trigger, his stories are phantasmagorical and occasionally hallucinating, yield a mirroring depiction of the human kind. The Bendito Machine Universe will be presented by its author in person, the designer and animator from Spain, Jossie Mallis.
  • VISITING SCHOOL: MOME ANIM  Young authors from MOME Anim, animation programme of prestigious Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design from Budapest, Hungary. Curated by Luca Tóth.
  • Making of RUBEN BRANDT, COLLECTOR Psychotherapist Ruben Brandt is tormented by nightmares filled with scenes resembling famous works of art. Convinced that his suffering will end once he gets to own these works of art, he hires professional thieves to steal them from the world museums. The first full-feature film of director Milorad Krstić has a fascinating visual appearance, while the process of its creation will be the topic of the talk by Danijel Milošević, sound designer and editor of this film.
  • The ANIDOX programme is part of the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark. It is a creative platform for development and production of documentary projects comprising a laboratory, professional training courses, residential programme and master classes. ANIDOX LAB brings together documentary producers, animation directors and creative producers within their joint projects, which will be the topic of video-link assisted talk by Uri Kranot, main instructor.
