Yoram Gross’ films will represent Australian animation at the Chitrakatha’11 international festival in India, from October 19 to 23. Yoram Gross built an animation empire by bringing Australian characters, from Dot and the Kangaroo to Blinky Bill, to the screen.
The Chitrakatha festival celebrates animation design and graphic storytelling from across the globe. The Cinema of Wonders program features Persian tales – animation from Iran to the Yoram Gross films: Blinky Bill The Mischievous Koala and The Little Convict starring Rolf Harris.
Chitrakatha 2011 commemorates 50 years of animation education at the National Institute of Design. This year’s theme is Back to Basics – exploring effective and timeless animation design.
