Cinanima Internacional Animation Film Festival

Phenakistiscope, better known as Phantascope, was the first animation device that created the illusion of motion. The device consisted of a round cardboard disc displaying 16 sequential illustrations, which turned into a short animated film when spun. The musicians Fernando Mota and Rui Rebelo were inspired by the films in those cardboards to improvise a soundtrack from instruments made with objects and toys.

CINANIMA is the oldest animated film festival in Portugal and has been taking place since 1976. Each year, Culturgest presents a selection of the award-winning films chosen by the Festival’s organizers from among those presented by both national and international contestants. Just as last year, there will be two different sessions: in the afternoon, a live music film session for families with the musicians Fernando Mota and Rui Rebelo and the customary screening of the award-winning films for an wider audience at evening.
