Fest Anca "International Animation Festival"

Cattle Call is a high-speed animated documentary about the art of livestock auctioneering. Structured around the mesmerizing talents of 2007 Man-Sask Auctioneer Champion, Tim Dowler, and using a variety of classic and avant-garde animation techniques (including stop-motion, cut-outs, open-exposures, hole-punching and rubbing lettraset directly on the celluloid) filmmakers Maryniuk and Rankin have created images as dazzlingly abstract, absurd and adrenalizing as the incredible language of auctioneering itself.
This hallucinogenic study of what Werner Herzog has termed the poetry of capitalism.

"Fest Anca" is an international animated film festival. Its purpose is to show contemporary, progressive animated films to commemorate the best of the genre's history. The long-term vision is to approximate well-known international festivals, filling an empty space in this field of art in Slovakia. An international competition for best animated film - to be selected by an expert panel - is part of the festival. Accompanying events include workshops, exhibitions and chats with filmmakers and producers. The summertime festival atmosphere is supported by a tent city, nighttime screenings and live concerts.
