Anima Mundi Festival in Sao Paulo

After passing through Rio de Janeiro, the Anima Mundi Festival comes to Sao Paulo and it'll be hosted by the Memorial da America Latina (Latin America Memorial) and Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil. The 17th International Animation Festival from Brazil presents 401 films from 40 different countries.

This one is a good year for the event. With the great impact of Brazilians such as Carlos Saldanha — responsible for the movies
Ice Age — on the digital entertainment market, the genre has gained a new momentum. An example of it is the number of registered long movies inscribed this year: 9 against 4 from 2008.

The Brazilian representative:
Aventuras de Gui e Estopa by Mariana Caltabiano, will be exhibited out of the competition. Among the features are the movies: Immigrants, by the Hungarian Gabor Csupo, the ironic $ 9.99, by the Israeli Talia Rosenthal, and Mia et le Migon by Jacques Rémy.

It will bring to the Brazilian audience the best world animation, it will present Competition Screenings, Special Programs, Retrospectives, International Guests and professional workshops.

Special Guests
Further the films, the public will be able to chat with big names of the animation world, like the French Michel Ocelo and the owner of the blog Cartoon Modern, Amid starch. Mike Cachuela, who developed a visual history of movies such as Ratatouille, The Incredible and Toy Story will offer the workshop Making Your Film.
