Melbourne International Animation Festival MIAF & ACMI Present

International Program 9: Fresh Eyes on Estonia

Scroll to content

MIAF has long championed Estonian animation. No country produces such persistently great, immediately recognisable animation as Estonia. It is home to Priit Parn, one of the undisputed living masters as well as to rising stars such as Ulo Pikkov, Priit Tender, Mait Laas and Chintus Lungren. The shifting 20th century politics of Europe influenced and flavoured Estonian animation But just as a rising generation of Estonian animators approach their filmmaking with much of that history in their rear-view mirrors, MIAF thought it was time a fresh set of younger eyes dropped in and took the temperature of what’s happening in Estonia.

Recent VCA graduate Annie Murray journeyed to Tallinn, sat down to talk to the filmmakers and came home with the wonderful program of the best new Estonian animation.

Unclassified 15+ (Children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian)
