MOME Anim received the Best Animation School Award at Animafest Zagreb 2016

At the 2016 World Festival of Animated Film – Animafest Zagreb, the Animation department of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest (MOME Anim) received the Best Animation School Award.

Each year the Student Film Competition Committee of the Festival gives the title to the school that sends in the most outstanding films. In 2016, two MOME Anim MA diploma films, The Noise of Licking by Nadja Andrasev, which a few weeks ago won third prize in the Cinéfondation program of the Cannes Film Festival, and Hugo Bumfeldt by Katinka Éva Bognár were selected for the competition program. At the Award Ceremony last weekend, The Noise of Licking got Special Mention in the Student Film Competition.

According to the Student Film Competition Committee of Animafest Zagreb: MOME Anim is “open to new media practices and technologies, and interested in all the accomplishments and inventions by way of which young animation artists may perfect their know-how and skills. At the same time, this is an art school that clearly and successfully fosters creative animation, an artistic style in which Eastern European cinema has traditionally achieved its animation peaks. Be it expressionist and avant-garde traditions, or animated documentary, playful formalism or narrative perfectionism, in this year’s student film competition MOME films bear a certain seal of quality.
With a high level of technical execution, intellectual stimulation, visual opulence and poetic visions, MOME Anim’s student animation entries at this festival testify to a top level of excellence in exploring most diverse animation techniques.”
