Animators All Around

Special Program

Recommended ages: 8+

Learn how animation goes from inspiration to sketch to screen directly from the creators in this exclusive NYICFF presentation:

We’re thrilled to share a very special behind the scenes look at the making of the new feature How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World with writer/director Dean DeBlois. He’ll offer a look at his impressive career as the writer, director, and animator of the How to Train Your Dragon film trilogy, his work on Lilo & Stitch, Mulan, and more, and share stories of how he first got started.

Continuing the special Friends & Neighbors spotlight on the Netherlands, Dutch filmmaker Marlies van der Wel will share her own unique style of animation and the meticulous artistry that goes into the making of her short films, including Jonas and the Sea and Emily.
