Two of the most prominent animators in Spain visit Scotland for a special workshop + programme of films specially commissioned for our retrospective Basque Spring.
Begoña Vicario and Izibene Oñederra select a programme of animated short-films that have influenced their artistic work. They are all wide collaborative projects between different teams/studios using a wide range of techniques.
Begoña VICARIO (1962, Venezuela) has a degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Basque Country in Audiovisual specialty and studied animation at the PIOT Studio in Moscow. Since 1988 she has taught animation at the Faculty of Fine Arts of the University of the Basque Country. She received the Goya Award for Best Animated Short Film for Ask for Me.
Azkoitia, 1979. Izibene Oñederra has a degree in Fine Arts from Bilbao University.
