With 17 French films selected, France once again took the lion's share of the programming at the animation festival Tricky Women, an event exclusively dedicated to female animation filmmakers.
The 18th edition of the Tricky Women Festival took place from March 13 to 17. Founded in 2001 to celebrate animated cinematic art by female directors, this year's program demonstrated the richness and diversity of French productions.
As well as enabling Austrian audiences to discover ambitious films made by students at prestigious film schools such as Les Gobelins (Caldeira), Rubika (No Gravity, Pulse, The Stained Club), ESRA (1805.13 MHz), and the École Georges Méliès (Xian), the festival program also included a large number of other works that have already been selected at numerous festivals and picked up many awards: Egg (Annecy, BIAFF, Odense), Cadavre exquis (Geneva, Uppsala), Raymonde or the Vertical Escape (Leeds, Ankara, Anima), Guaxuma (Ottawa, Sao Paulo, Toronto), and Embraced, to name but a few.
The directors Martina Scarpelli and Anaïs Caura were present at the event. To coincide with this festival, we would like to inform readers that you can watch the complete first season of their work The Man Woman Case, by clicking here.
This year, Tricky Women shone the spotlight on China. In 2020, it will be France's turn to be honored by the festival.
