Annecy 2023 Täglich einen Kurzen: „Tchaikovsky, An Elegy.“ Stop Motion Animation Short by Barry J C Purves

It is with immense pleasure that the Annecy Festival pays tribute to an animation genius, Barry J.C. Purves! This exceptional talent, creator of stop-motion masterpieces, shattered taboos and opened up new perspectives in the animation universe by tackling important themes on homosexuality. Among his most acclaimed creations are Screen Play or Achilles, which won multiple awards.

As well as receiving the Honorary Cristal, Barry Purves will be presenting a Masterclass called „The Revealing Mask“. This unique opportunity will see the director share his thoughts and experiences on how animation can be used to represent and celebrate LGBTQ+ identities.

The Annecy Festival is proud to pay tribute to this animation legend. Bary J.C. Purves continues to inspire and contribute to the development of animated art and this accolade is a testament to his outstanding contribution.
