Again, the famous berlin cinema Kino Babylon Mitte opens his doors for the Pictoplasma Festival 2010.
Since 2005, this “festival for contemporary character design and art” brings together an international scene of artists, directors, designers and agencies, offering a unique forum for all those working with – or simply loving – the visualisation and application of contemporary character design.
Whether illustration, animation, graphic design, urban vinyl, street or fine art – this year, it’s all about character-driven aesthetics in contemporary visual culture.
An international line-up of established and up-coming artists, directors, animators and designers will present their character-centric work in concentrated lectures and talks. Attendees have the chance to learn more about the inspiration, production process and personal approach of some of today’s most outstanding creators.
Beyond that, a vast program of animation screenings and special programs showcases the very best of today’s characters in motion, with selected work ranging from music visuals, motion graphics, narrative shorts and experimental animation. Screenings of Characters in Motion, Narration and Rhythm present the latest visual tendencies in contemporary character design.
The festival will be rounded off with the big Pictoplasma party on Saturday night – CharacterScope panoramas, Festival speakers DJing to their own visuals and live performances included.
