Hand-drawn feature animation from Brazil is gaining momentum on the international festival circuit. Last month the Brazilian feature “The Boy and the World” (“O menino e o mundo”) won the top feature prize at Annecy.
Today the Annecy International Animated Film Festival announced the feature film selections for their 2014 edition. Eighteen films were selected—nine in competition and nine out of competition. A total of 68 animated features were submitted this year.
“Lisa Limone and Maroc Orange: A Rapid Love Story” is a 72-minute stop motion opera directed by Mait Laas.
