Collage! is a selection of short works on the border between animated and experimental cinema: from the experiments of Stan VanDerBeek, Barbara Hammer and Xander Marro to the recent music videos of Winston Hacking, Ugo Vittu and Peter The Moon passing through the dream-alchemical synthesis by Virgilio Villoresi with Vivì Ponti and the imaginative animations by Lawrence Jordan made with collages of Victorian engravings. In the collage everything seems to lead us back to a phrase from Ovid’s “The Metamorphoses”: “inspiration pushes me to tell about changed forms, in new bodies”. Hence the refutation of the tertium non datur, immersion in the realm of free-form symbolism, of playful combinatorial creativity. An opportunity to discover, to the rhythm of collage, the “theaters of the mind” – to quote Lawrence Jordan – of these brilliant filmmakers. (edited by Maria Pia Santillo)

Imaginaria also winks at digital 3D animation by dedicating a special program for children and families to ESMA, a school of applied arts present in Montpellier, Montreal, Toulouse, Lyon and Nantes, with more than 25 years of experience and recognized in international level for the quality and richness of his artistic teaching. The school offers training in Space Design, Graphic Design and 3D Animation Cinema, as well as three preparatory years. Its mission is to prepare its students for different artistic professions so that they fully satisfy their creative desires.
