International Animation Day 2018 – Poster

The International Animation Day Poster for 2018 has been released!

October 28 is International Animation Day. It’s a day to recognize and celebrate the artists, the scientists and the technicians behind animated art including animated movies.

ASIFA created the International Animation Day (IAD) in 2002, honoring the birth of animation, recognized as the first public performance of projected moving images: Emile Reynaud’s Theatre Optique in Paris, on the 28th October 1892.

René Castillo of ASIFA Mexico and his studio of animators generously created the 2018 IAD poster. René is best known for his animation Hasta los Huesos (Down to the Bones), which was honored with more than 60 awards around the globe. His studio Mandaraka is currently producing an animated film Thingdom: the Kingdom of things, slated to be released this year.

In the poster, the eyes have it – 18 visions gaze upon the viewer, just as the viewer is drawn to the variety of imagined expressions they represent. René Castillo of ASIFA Mexico, along with nine other animators at his Mandaraka studios, created these emotions, frozen in time, practically begging for life beyond their storyboarded existence.

With this philosophy, he created his poster celebrating International Animation Day, October 28, expressing passion he has embraced since a serious auto accident gave him appreciation for the brevity of life. Better to mold life into clay than a life of molded management.

Castillo noted, “every animator has a unique and personal point of view, with different styles, techniques, themes, colors… If we celebrate world animation, we must celebrate the diversity of looks.”

So, how to plan for International Animation Day 2018? It starts with the poster and letting your members know about this years events. Your chapter can coordinate an exchange of films with other chapters, plan a workshop, or simply host a screening on or around October 28th, 2018. Use the poster as you need for advertising about your event, and be sure to let the IAD coordinator know what you are planning.
