Butterfly Hunter

It's a tradition for the family, the butterfly hunters, to finish their own pictures of butterflies. However, as time goes by, the environment changes a lot and the forests began to disappear rapidly, which make butterflies diminish. How can these butterfly hunters accomplish their own works? The concept comes from some key words from Taiwan : a kingdom of butterflies, a country of exporting butterflies, and Euploeas (the second largest group of native butterflies.)

Landlocked Film Festival has had a strong relationship with the Animation Workshop (located in Denmark) for several years now. Their students, who come from many countries, learn to produce intriguing, top-quality animation, and we are thrilled to be showcasing that talent again this year at Landlocked.

These are short but not necessarily sweet. Using a widely diverse animation techniques, these short films often tackle themes of political complexity as well as humor. This year's selections are best for a teen and up audience.

The Animation Workshop enjoys a strong and wide reputation due to the top education provided for those who wish to enter the international film industry. It is an international centre of knowledge and development for animation (and related) professions and businesses.
