Oyayi and Papa Jorge’s Bedtime Radio Confessions, two animated features from Filipino creators, are being presented at this year’s Annecy International Animated Film Festival conducted online amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Mitzi Ann Delima’s “Oyayi” is an hour-long animated feature film, centering on a young outcast’s venture to her mother’s tribe to discover the reason for her abandonment; and finds Christians forbidden from trespassing the tribe’s territory as one answer to her question.
“Oyayi” is presented under the international Animation du Monde MIFA pitches and will be showcased along with nine other feature films on June 18, 2020.
Emmanuel Angeles’ 10-episode series “Papa Jorge’s Bedtime Radio Confessions”, a follow up on the animated film “Hayop Ka!”, features different callers who ask a lively radio host for personal advice.
“Papa Jorge’s”, being developed by Rocketsheep Studio, is part of the Focus on South East Asia MIFA 2020 program that showcases five feature projects from the region. The development of these projects has been overseen and guided by French experts.
Annecy Online Animated Film Fest will run until June 30.
Filipino animators have been making their marks around the world including young animator, Jade Dandan Evangelista, who has been recognized in an EU film festival for her animated film and tribute to COVID-19 warriors.
Pinoy animation artist Bobby Rubio, the creator of the Filipino Pixar short “Float,” had also drawn a gratitude message to medical frontliners with his short’s protagonist.
SEND WELL WISHES to the teams behind Oyayi and Papa Jorge’s Bedtime Radio Confessions for their participation at the Annecy Online Animated Film Fest.
