To mark the opening of Animateka, we are showing a set of films selected by the festival jury.

Padec / La Chute / The Fall
Boris Labbé (Sacrebleu Productions)
France, 2018, digital, 14'22"

As celestial beings descend to Earth vitiating its population, the world’s order unbalances. This is the beginning of a tragic fall that leads to the birth of crucial opposites: Hell and Heaven’s circles.

Ideja / L'idée
Berthold Bartosch (independent)
France, 1932, 25'00''

An animated narrative on the theme of humanity's response to ideals, this film traces the story of an artist who sends his abstract ideal out into the world. His artistic conception is rejected and exploited by the ruling powers of business, religion and the military. As the titles make clear, Bartosch's conclusion is that "men live and die for an idea... the idea is immortal. You can persecute it, judge it, forbid it, condemn it to death. But the idea continues to live in the minds of men."

Turbina / Turbine
Alex Boya (National Film Board of Canada)
Canada, 2018, 08'30''

A war pilot crash-lands through his apartment window. When his wife returns from work, she discovers that her husband’s face has been replaced by an airplane turbine. He’s also fallen in love with their kitchen ceiling fan. To save their faltering marriage, his wife decides she will no longer let her humanity get in the way of love.

Inglorious Liaisons
Chloé Alliez, Violette Delvoye (Vivement Lundi !/Zorobabel)
France, Belgium, 2021, 11'03''

Tonight, Lucie, Maya, and their friends are having a big party. Even Jimmy has come: he’s there for Maya, everyone knows it. But at the moment when everything is supposed to happen, hidden feelings, tender and confused, surface for Maya and Lucie. It’s difficult making sense of them in this evening driven by alcohol that flows freely, a tear-jerking playlist, and raging hormones.

Sedem na en mah
Saša Dobrila (Triglav film)
Yugoslavia (Slovenia), 1952, 11'00''

One day, an ingenious little tailor hits seven flies with one slap. The news of his “feat” spreads like wildfire across the kingdom, and now he must face a giant who is pestering the city and its people.

A screening of a digitised copy of the first Slovenian animation to mark the 70th anniversary of its premiere and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Saša Dobrila.

Boris Labbé (independent)
France, 2016, 07'52''

A trip towards abstraction, as a hypothesis on how mountains might have been formed.

What's On

Pacifiction Pacifiction

Albert Serra

Tuesday, 31. 01. 2023 / 17:00 / Main Hall

Miha Vipotnik

Tuesday, 31. 01. 2023 / 17:30 / Small Hall

A musical film using live-action and animated inserts to tell the story of an old, abandoned piano in Studio 1 of Radio Slovenia. The basic premises of the stories are true and supported by insider testimonies; the rest is a product of the authors’ imagination and creative drive. The film won the Vesna Award for original music and the Slovenian Film Publicists (FIPRESCI) Award.


Boris Petkovič
