Erasmus Mundus Master in Animation Film
Genk - Lisbon - Espoo
Campus Genk / C-mine

RE:ANIMA is an International two-year master program in Animation Film, as a colloboration between LUCA campus C-mine Genk (Belgium), Aalto University (Finland) and Lusófona University (Portugal). RE:ANIMA explores all fields of animation, from fiction narrative to documentary and experimental uses of animation in expanded fields.

Curriculum

The program has an original mobility scheme that takes the students on an educational and creative journey from Belgium, where they will explore the foundations of narrative animation filmmaking, to Finland, where they will strengthen their technical and artistic animation skills and experiment with the craft, to Portugal, where they will use the tools of animation to depict and reflect upon reality, using the processes of animation as a form of documenting the world and act upon it.
 
Throughout the four semesters the students will acquire differentiated competences, explore diverse methods and approaches, while at the same time working on their graduation animation projects. These projects can take the form of fiction, documentary or experimental animation of a various nature that combine techniques and multidisciplinary approaches.
