Next Pre Fixe with Animation Lounge on December 12 with Elena Walf (Studio Filmbilder)

Together with the Film- und Medienfestival gGmbH (organizer of Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film) and the AMCRS, MFG organizes the Pre Fixe with Animation Lounge as a prelude to the monthly network meeting of the film industry (Jour Fixe), at which speakers from the animation film scene report on current projects using practical examples and provide insights into their work.

On December 12, 2022 at 18:00 CET, Elena Walf will talk about “News from “Lena’s Farm”: Insights into the creation process of an animation series“.

The hand-drawn animation series “Lena’s Farm“, on which Elena Walf has been working with her team for three years, is being created at Studio Filmbilder in Stuttgart. Producer Thomas Meyer-Herrmann had the idea for the series; the source of inspiration was Elena Walf’s short film “Bat Time” (2015), which was made as part of the TV magazine “Ich kenne ein Tier”. Each episode is designed like a short film and manages entirely without dialogues. The focus is on the big and small inhabitants of Lena’s farm: from cow to dog and squirrel – everyone is there. Elena Walf reports on the making of the series with numerous examples and provides insights into the creative process.

The event will take place at Theater Rampe, Filderstraße 47, 70180 Stuttgart, and is free of charge.

The Jour Fixe offers a unique opportunity for exchange and networking with the MFG Unit Film Funding team. All participants are cordially invited to join the subsequent Jour Fixe starting at 19:00 CET.

Please note: There is no longer a requirement to show a negative Corona test in order to participate. Nevertheless, we recommend to do a quick test on your own before the event and to wear a mouth-nose-protection during the event.

MFG Zukunftskonferenz “Was machst Du?” on October 10, 2022

The economy and society are in the midst of a profound transformation in which many products, services and processes have to be rethought and developed. Shaping change is a core competence of the cultural and creative industries. Against the background of current crises and personal challenges, how can courageous creatives implement their ideas and create future perspectives with a desire for change?

The MFG Zukunftskonferenz (Future Conference) on October 10 at the Hospitalhof Stuttgart will focus on the question “Was machst Du?” (“What do you do?”). Successful, innovative players and entrepreneurs from the creative industries will present and discuss their ideas, solutions and learnings in workshops, keynote speeches and talk panels. The conference is supported by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics, Labour and Tourism.

The highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the IDEENSTARK award to this year’s winners. With IDEENSTARK, the state awards actors in the cultural and creative industries in Baden-Württemberg. With a one-year coaching programme, they are supported by MFG Baden-Württemberg in advancing their ideas and business models and strengthening them for the future. The award is being presented for the sixth time this year and is supported by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts and the Ministry of Economics, Labour and Tourism Baden-Württemberg.
