“Lady and the tooth” will be screening at the 16th Mecal International short Film Festival of Barcelona (6th-30th March). The film is in the Trash Animation competition one of six programs of national and international animated short films of various formats, such as the classic cartoon or stop-motion.
Taken from the Mecal website the term Trash Animation is explained further…
“The label of “Trash Cinema” was used to refer to productions with plots derived from B movies. We have used this definition to create a selection of animated short films that break the mould; productions characterised with an irreverent, crude, rule-breaking or gore spirit that proves that animation can be used to tackle a wide range of storylines, and it’s not limited to the younger audiences only.”
Mecal attracts over 4,500 films from all around the world, making Mecal the top festival in Spain in terms of the number of entries received. The festival features four competition sections: Animation, International, Oblique and Documentaries, with more than 300 short films being screened from over 35 countries. As well as the screenings, the festival will organize other related activities like the Battle of the Programmers and the international short films market.
