Be there! Corfu Animation Festival Goes Crowdfunding
Be there! Corfu Animation Festival has celebrated 5 editions in Corfu, Greece, hosting more than 1000 films, both in competition and retrospectives.
Michaela Pavlátová, Jean-François Laguionie, Persepolis' producer Marc Jousset (Je Suis Bien Content), Polish director Zbigniew Rybczysnki have all been hosted in a festival which aims to connect the Greek animation scene (Stelios Polychronakis, Effie Pappa, Panagiotis Rappas among others) with the international festival circuit.
Getting connections with both Cinanima (Espinho), Anifilm (Trebon) and other European fesivals, Be there! launched an Indiegogo campaign to crowdfund its 6th edition (29 March - 2 April 2017).
The 6th edition introduces a new festival competition (short films for children), and promises a programme of auteurs and thematic tributes alike.
