  • 19.30 Animation Sans Frontiéres (ASF)
    The ASF (animation without borders) education programme was launched in 2008 in the partnership of four acclaimed European animation film schools. The goal of the animation production workshop run by the participating universities – Gobelins, Paris; Filmakademie Baden–Württemberg, Germany; The Animation Workshop, Denmark and MOME, Hungary – is to help young animation film makers in starting their career. The four institutions have different profiles, albeit all of them are leaders of animation education in their respective countries. The ASF compilation offers a collection of the most recent diploma works of our three partner institutions. The films are screened in original language with English subtitles or dub!
