Pixar in toon with Latam festival

Anima Mundi to include 438 competing projects

RIO DE JANEIRO — The 11th edition of Latin America’s largest animation festival kicked off Friday, and will include a special tribute to Pixar.

Anima Mundi 2003, which will wrap Sunday, will feature 438 animated cartoons competing for jury and public prizes, as well as workshops and panels with local and international guests.

Pixar’s Doug Sweetland will present the company’s cartoons and give a workshop for 35 local amateur animators. Sweetland’s “For the Birds” received the 2002 Academy Award for animated short.

Some of the other international guests will be Japan’s Koji Yamamura, who made 2001 Oscar nominee “Mt. Head”; the National Film Board of Canada’s Janet Perlman and Judith Gruber-Stitzer; and Germany’s Filmakademie animator Katrin Arndt.

The fest will move to Sao Paulo for a July 23-27 run, which Sweetland also will attend.
