Thursday and Friday are for professionals!
The two days of TAFF Pro brings together domestic and foreign animators and others working in animation. TAFF Pro strives to promote the vitality of the animation field and offers new ideas and contacts to industry players and students. This year’s theme is the combination of comics and animation. The pro program consists of master classes and panels, as well as cartoon-themed film screenings.
You can read about TAFF Pro and apply for professional accreditation from our Professionals-page.
In the master classes, you will hear directly from the artists who combine comics and animation about their experiences and processes. In the panel discussions, the convergence of animation and comics will be examined, as well as production and copyright issues. Reflections and experiences about copyrights, working with the production team and where to begin if you want your comics to be an animated film will be discussed. The panel examines the topic from the perspective of artists, production and copyright law.

The primary language of the TAFF Pro program is English. Questions to the panelists can also be asked in Finnish.
