  • On the global level, most artistic animations are produced at various educational institutions. Universities are beginning to play roles similar to those that have been played by animation studios in the past. In Hungary, the animation program at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest is today the most important recruiting base for animation and one of the leading creative workshops. Its student films were collecting awards from the most prestigious festivals around the world, including Cannes, the Berlinale, and Annecy.

    At the former Hungarian College of Applied Arts, it was officially launched in 1980 by instructors who had been among the directors at Pannonia (Marcell Jankovics, József Nepp, and Zsolt Richly). Artists belonging to the younger generation who had completed studies in animation followed them among the teachers (e.g. Sándor Békési, Géza M. Tóth). Since 2005, József Fülöp has been the head of the program. The two-level BA and MA programs were created under his leadership.

    Over the course of the past few years, MOME Anim has developed relationships with the leading educational institutions of Europe and has created international training programs and projects (for instance with the UK-based National Film and Television School, the Royal College of Art, Gobelins in France, the Animation Workshop in Denmark, the Filmakademie Baden-Würtenberg in Germany, the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Israel, and CalArts in the United States). One of the most important elements of the program is the incubation of talent. Current students work together with graduates from the program on animation projects.

    Students often combine old-school analogue and the most up-to-date digital techniques in ingenious ways. In addition, recently the spotlight has been taken by strong female animation artists, whose films are probably the most striking from a visual and a thematic point of view. Many of them dedicate their films to the criticism of social preconceptions, a major force shaping today’s society.

    This selection was curated by one of the leading female directors of the Hungarian young generation, Luca Tóth, who earned her BA at MOME Anim in 2011, and her MA at the Royal College of Art in London in 2013. She is currrently leading drawing classes for BA students at MOME Anim.
