No brakes on imagination: The 14th edition of TRICKY WOMEN at Vienna’s Metro Kinokulturhaus celebrates international animation by women with a wide range of films in various sections as well as exhibitions, workshops, lectures and parties.
Anime, mangas, and more: spotlight on Japan
Few countries, if any, can match the rich culture of animation that Japan is so famous for. With short-film programs curated specifically for TRICKY WOMEN and award-winning anime such as IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD or TAMAKO LOVE STORY, Japanese animated films by women take center stage here for the first time. As usual, there’s a lot to discover at TRICKY WOMEN. Japanese artist Fumiyo Kouno, on whose manga the film is based, will present IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD at the festival, while Q&As and workshops with popular Japanese mangaka offer first-hand insights into this special art form. Talks on the global manga boom and two exhibitions with manga drawings, animations and paintings as well as a live drawing performance, which will be taking place over several days, complete this focus on Japan.
International competition & special sections
The international competition is the centerpiece of the festival and explores new trends and tendencies in independent animated filmmaking around the world. The program of TRICKY WOMEN 2017 also features animated documentaries, new animation from Austria, and special sections that look at questions of life and love from a variety of perspectives, ranging from surrealism to laconic humor. The protagonist of WINDOW HORSES (Canada), in her turn, draws on the power of poetry to confront her own prejudices and history on a journey to Teheran. The film by Ann Marie Flemming, starring voice actors like Ellen Page and Sarah Oh, will receive its Austrian premiere at TRICKY WOMEN 2017.
