CUT PASTE ANIMATE
A co-presentation between the8fest and the Toronto Animated Image Society (TAIS)
Saturday January 31 – 9:00pm
Polish Combatants Hall (206 Beverley St., Toronto)
For the8fest’s 2015 edition, the festival decided to echo its 2012 programme Adventures in Animationland. Cut Paste Animate focuses on animation and collage ─ bringing life to still images, playing with what can only be represented by abstracting shapes and bodies or using hands and eyes to explore tensions between what is static and what must be kinetic. In addition to works received as submissions, the8fest has commissioned new animated works by visual artists already conversant with film and visual artists whose bodies of work have seriously implied sequences of moving pictures.
