Agnieszka Koperniak – curator – Animation workshop of the New Horizons Summer Academy and Films for Children section of the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival
FRED’s Matt Micucci interviews Agnieszka Koperniak from the T-Mobile New Horizons International Film Festival. She is here filling two very important role – that of the curator of the FILMS FOR CHILDREN section, and as the coordinator of the stop motion animation workshop of the New Horizons Summer Academy, which teaches school teachers about filmmaking in an intensive course.
As an expert in the field, not only of animation filmmaking but also family films in general, we ask her about her opinion of the current state of this type of filmmaking genre and what benefits could result if this were to be given enough attention.
