14th Holland Animation Film Festival 3 – 7 November 2010 in Utrecht
www.haff.nl The winner of the international competition web animation HAFFTube 2010 is Silver Junkie: Maria, by the Belgian visual artist Gitte Le Bruyn (1985).
She created a series of oil paintings on glass, which she lit and photographed, inspired by the music of the Belgian band Silver Junkie (Tino Biddeloo). Full of contrast in black-and-white, intense, with generous brushstrokes, unruly and hopeful. Gitte Le Bruyn graduated as a visual artist in 2008 from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
The web competition HAFFTube has been open for entries for a few months. The channel filled up with an international state of the art selection of contemporary animated films from all over the world with a maximum length of 5 minutes. At the set limit of 50 films, the voting began. An international jury of filmmakers selected Silver Junkie: Maria out of the shortlist of 50 titles. Gitte Le Bruyn will be hosted at the Holland Animation Film Festival next year, with a festival pass and arranged stay in a hotel.
