Svensk animation hundra år:

För exakt hundra år sedan visades Victor Bergdahls animerade film Trolldrycken för första gången, vilket innebar den svenska animationens födelse. Bergdahl skulle snart skapa den animerade serien om kapten Grogg och en spännande resa tog fart.

Svensk animation framstår idag som en vital 100-åring som i sitt sköte bär en rik tradition av animerad barnfilm, animation inspirerad av moderna tecknade serier, dokumentärt och mycket annat. Välkomna till en resa genom svensk animations historia i form av en föreläsning som presenterar en spännande utveckling av ett något försummat filmhistoriskt fenomen.

Föreläsningen är illustrerad med utvalda klipp från tidstypiska filmer.

Midhat ”Ajan” Ajanovic: filmvetare och programansvarig lärare på programmet 3D-animation & visualisering vid Högskola Väst i Trollhättan is an author and film maker born in Sarajevo (Bosnia).
He teaches animation at various Swedish film schools and writes regularly about film and animation.
He has published many books in various genres and in several languages. Some of his books dealing with history and theory of animated film will be sold in the foyer during the festival.

After 100 years of Swedish animation history there will be short animated films screened which follow the style of the first Swedish animation film, The Demon drink, Trolldrycken from 1915 and the first film submited to Insane, Thought Power from Nigeria.
