Gil Alkabetz designs the poster for Anima 2021
Director Gil Alkabetz (Rubikon, Morir de Amor...) was born in 1957 in Kibutz “Mashabei Sade”, Israel. Between 1979 and 1983 he studied Graphic Design at the “Bezalel“ Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem.
Since 1984 has been working as an animation filmmaker and illustrator, first in Israel and since 1994 in Germany.
Since 2003 has been teaching as an animation professor at the Film University “Konrad Wolf” in Potsdam Babelsberg.
For Anima’s poster, Gil Alkabetz explains his intention as follows:
"Although animated film is pure fantasy, it often succeeds in really touching our inner being. The encounter with it leaves a trace in our soul, which sometimes accompanies us throughout our whole life. I tried to express this thought in the poster, in which a person has a piece of a fantasy figure in it and vice versa. I was very glad to have the opportunity to do this for the Anima Festival, which is particularly close to my heart."
