The International Festival of Films on Art - 39TH Edition from March 16 to 28, 2021

Atelier stop-motion : les découvertes du cinéma d'animation

| 2020 | 180 min


Free | Registration required
Workshop for children - From 8 years old

The Montreal Museum of fine Arts invites you to experience the 15-20 workshop on stop-motion animation.
Given the large number of movie productions made by big American studios such as Pixar and Disney, we as FIFA Education aim to encourage young people to discover the world of animation. Three animated short-films are presented to a group of students followed by a stop motion workshop, an ideal opportunity to learn how to make your own animated short-film with the help of an animation specialist.

This project is possible thanks to the financial support of the Government of Quebec.
