The second part of our Estonian animation evening  – Estonian animation: A Centenary Celebration screens after this one at 9pm. You can buy tickets for both screenings for just £12 + booking fee.


Chintis Lundgren is an Estonian-born animator who hit the ground running to huge acclaim with her first film in 2008. She soon after established her own independent animation studio and is currently a founder of Adriatic Animation, a new animation studio based on the coast of Croatia, along with her partner Drasko Ivezic.

Chintis is a self-taught animator and quickly gained attention in the animation world for her quirky music videos and short films featuring a light, absurdist tone along with distinct anthropomorphic characters. Her films (including About the Hard Life of the Barn Swallow, the music video, I Love your Face, and the award-winning Life with Herman H. Rott, and her latest work, Manivald) have screened at numerous international animation festivals, winning many awards and accolades along the way.

We are very excited that Chintis Lundgren will be with us in person tonight to discuss and present her films alongside her partner Drasko Ivezic.

Thanks to the Estonian Embassy for helping us bring Chintis to LIAF.
