One of FAF’s main goals is to increase awareness of what is going on in the individual Nordic-Baltic animation scenes, and thus encourage a higher degree of exchange and cooperation within the region. “New Nordic Animation” is the festival’s yearly industry forum, and aims to give studios and other animation professionals a platform to show off their latest projects, exchange ideas and expand their international network.
For the 2020 session of New Nordic Animation, Norwegian director Yngvill Sve Flikke will be present alongside graphic novelist and animator Inga Sæthre, giving a work-in-progress presentation of the upcoming feature film Ninjababy. The film combines live action and animation and is based on Sætre’s graphic novel Fall Technique.
The Danish studio Tumblehead and Swedish Soja will be joining the event remotely, presenting their work and new projects in their pipelines.
