I wanted to share this great post by Signe Baumane about the Tricky Women film festival. The festival deadline is in October each year. Tricky Women Animation Festival was the first festival I posted on this blog back in 2011.
Tricky Women is Tricky because animation in German is Trickfilm. Puns are fun. The festival itself is also fun, based in a good looking, friendly town of Vienna.
The festival is organized by a team of great women lead by Waltraud Grausgruber and Birgitt Wagner. They know what they are doing because each screening gets a good, enthusiastic audience of mixed gender. Unlike many other festivals Tricky Women treat their filmmakers as they would treat their visiting family – with warm care and attention.
There was only one thing I missed at the festival that I would suggest they have next time – a Q&A with filmmakers after each screening. To my experience audiences always want to know personal reasons behind making the film, little anecdotes and technical aspects. It would connect the filmmakers with their fans in a more comprehensive way.
