On 4-8 September, the international festival of contemporary animation and media art LINOLEUM will be held on Podil. It is the largest showcase of the best author animation in Ukraine, so put your best sneakers on and stretch your muscles ready for the sprint races between Zhovten cinema and IZONE creative space.
LINOLEUM 2019 theme is Common Ground. Modernity offers a wide range of opportunities and freedom of choice in almost everything. Still, this freedom also raises the question of how can people divided into numerous communities due to religious diversity, different political positions and worldviews continue to coexist without conflict? We believe that animation is the most universal language in the universe. So let's look for the "common ground" together!
The festival will have three competition programs: Ukrainian, International and Commissioned Film. During the event, you’ll have an opportunity to participate in lectures and workshops from leading animators and directors.
LINOLEUM Festival 2019 is supported by the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, the State Film Agency of Ukraine, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Ukraine and the Austrian Cultural Forum in Kyiv. The organizer of the festival is Animagrad animation studio.
