Our festival was delighted to host here in Tallinn Gerben Schermer, an internationally active animation and art curator from the Netherlands. Gerben is curating our exhibition of contemporary artists working with animation. It will open during the festival in several gallery spaces of the Estonian Academy of Arts. Gerben presented a screening of contemporary Chinese animation and had many inspiring meetings with students, filmmakers and gallerists.
