The 35th episode “A Boomerang note” of the popular animated series "Paper Tales" entered the contest program of the 25th International Animation Festival Anima Mundi, that will be held in Brazil July 18-30, 2017. "Paper Tales" will compete in the "Short films" category.
The Festival organizers received 1200 cartoons and 345 of them were selected to the contest program. They will represent 45 countries of the world.
The International Animation Festival of Brazil, Anima Mundi, happens every year in the cities of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. During its 23 years, it has screened more than 9 thousand films from 70 different countries for an audience of 1 million and 200 thousand people.
"Paper Tales" shows the creative journeys of a paper cut-out duo — moose, Aristotle, and woodpecker, Knock-Knock — in a paper wonderland. The origami creatures captivate kids, while the DIY instructions help them develop motor skills, logic, and their imagination. The animation shares light philosophies and ways to deal with mishaps. Kids learn how to make their own paper cut-out toy at the end of each episode relevant to its lesson. The hands-on activities promote kids’ independence and creativity, giving them an alternative to computer games.
