Trollywood Animation Festival 2018 proudly presents Per Åhlin as Guest of honor
We are very proud to welcome Per Åhlin, who is a legendary Swedish animator who has given the animated film an increased status and place in Swedish film history, as a speaker at TAF 2018. He started his career in animation 1964 with the unconventional title sequences for the feature film, Svenska Bilder (Swedish Images). When the feature film I huvet på en gammal gubbe premiered in 1968, the audience sensationally saw a mix of elements where the animated components formed the bulk of the film and the live action a smaller part. Never before had a Swedish film with such comprehensive animated features been shown at the cinema.
50 years later he can look back over a plethora of pioneering feature films and tv-series. Åhlin will tell us about his long career in an on stage discussion with Elisabeth Lysander, author of the biography “Per Åhlin – bildmakare and animatör“.
