Children’s Film Festival Audience Award at this year’s Filmfest Munich went to directors Jakob Schuh, Jan Lachauer and Bin Han To for their animated film REVOLTING RHYMES (ONCE UPON A TIME … TO ROALD DAHL).
Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood and a few other classic fairy tales – tilted once in a big bag, shaken up and fished out again. What comes out are completely new stories. Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White are best friends and take matters into their own hands. Since capitulated even the big bad wolf. It is great fun to watch this confusion that have animated fans loving the Oscar-nominated directors.
Other highlights of the young festival visitors have included Maria Novaros Tesoros ONLY ONE DAY by Martin Baltscheit, AMELIE RUNS by Tobias Wiemann and PRINCESS AND THE DRAGON by Michel Ocelot.
For adults and children, there were nine films, six short films and a meeting with the foley artist Max Bauer. An accompanying seminar for parents and educators about “horror and horror for children” and a technical discussion for filmmakers completed the program.
