At 11 in the Council Chamber of Portogruaro there will be a meeting with some guest authors of the festival: Beatrice Pucci, Michele Bernardi, Roberto Paganelli and Mauro Carraro.

Following at 12 at the Municipal Gallery of Contemporary Art “Ai Molini” in Portogruaro there will be a guided tour of the “15+1” exhibition dedicated to the authorial world of animated short films created by the Porto dei Benandanti Association in collaboration with the Viva Comix Association of Pordenone, as part of the 15th edition of the Piccolo Festival dell’Animazione.

Here 15 authors exhibit their most recent film production with didactic materials taken mainly from the book/DVD “Animazioni 6” edited by Paola Bristot together with Andrea Martignoni and Roberto Paganelli (Viva Comix and Ottomani editions).

In the second mill there is also the documentation of a collective project of considerable importance “Re-cycling”, in which 10 international authors were confronted with the traditional technique of drawing directly on film, coordinated by the artistic direction of Paola Bristot.
