Just like each year, other than screening films in competition Supertoon International Animation Festival will also offer a multitude of very interesting side programs.

In five festival days at five outdoor locations, but in other public city spaces, too – in line with the Šibenik slogan “City is a stage” – Supertoon 10 will include an animation workshop, Artist Q&A’s, several exhibitions, TV boxes and a pop-up comic book fair.

An exhibition by Supertoon jury member Katrin Novaković will present the props and items from her stop motion video for the song “Right now” by ABOP, giving audiences a glimpse into the atmosphere and the behind-the-scenes of a film set.

“Back to the Future”, a group exhibition of works by independent comic artists at Azimut club, will display representative works by comic book authors and collectives from the region and will be accompanied by an outdoor comic book fair and screen printing stands as well as daily presentations and Q&A’s with authors. Members of the collectives and platforms such as Komikaze (CRO/SLO), Matrijaršija / Fijuk / Novo doba (SRB), OHOHO! (CRO), the association of artists called Hrvatski autorski strips (Croatian Auteur Comics Association) and representatives of the contemporary Osijek, Zagreb and Split comic scene will feature prominently in the Supertoon 10 side program.

The PLANKTOON animation workshop pays special attention to educating – that is, working, teaching and socializing with – children. This segment of the program will give them the opportunity to get acquainted with the process of making animated films and learn the basic principles of animation, camera manipulation and editing while using their creativity to tell their own stories and make their own short animated films.
