In the last edition of CINANIMA, in 2023, several masterclasses were presented featuring renowned professionals from the animation film industry. Priit Tender, from Estonia, came to ESAD Escola Superior de Artes e Design (Matosinhos) to discuss the creative process behind his stop motion film “Dog Apartment”, while Craig Caldwell, from the USA, tackled the creation of engaging and realistic characters in the Multipurpose Room of the Centro Multimeios. João Levezinho visited the high schools in the city of Espinho to talk about simplicity in visual art and narrative. Britt Raes, from Belgium, shared her personal journey into animation cinema at the School of Arts of the Catholic University of Porto, while Nikola Majdak and Ana Nedeljković, from Serbia, went to Barcelos, at the Instituto Politécnico do Cávado e do Ave, to discuss the transfer of personal experiences into animated films. João Gonzalez detailed the process behind his film “Ice Merchants”, from conception to international recognition at Cannes and the Oscars, as an ESMAD alumni in Vila do Conde.

In 2024, CINANIMA will continue the tradition of bringing recognized professionals to conduct masterclasses at universities, providing learning opportunities and inspiration for those interested in animation.
