The ARS Electronica Animation Festival on Tour presents the annual best-of programme - a compilation of outstanding works chosen from 835 projects submitted in 2019 for the Prix ARS Electronica.
The two programs of the 2019 ARS Electronica Animation Festival are yet again an international showcase of excellence in current digital filmmaking. This compilation presents innovative trajectories within digital storytelling, expanded narration as well as current cinematography at the intersection of art and science and brings together works with contemporary positions - from computer-generated procedural structures to trailblazing examples of frame-by-frame animated sequences.
This event has been made possible through the collaboration between the Austrian Federal Ministry for European and International Affairs and the ARS Electronica Animation Festival.
