12. April 2021 Another year without Festivals

For many years, the first half of the year at Rixfilm has been structured by festivals. Our annual cycle begins in February with the Berlinale, in March follows the Film Festival Turkey Germany which is co-curated by Frank Becher, in May the International Animated Film Festival in Stuttgart and it ends finally in June with a few nice days in Annecy. Now we are in our second year without these festivals. Honestly, we miss them. All attempts to hold the festivals online are ok. But just no comparison to being on site, meeting people, discussing projects, eating and drinking together. At the FFTD we are still hoping to celebrate our 25th anniversary this year. We have moved it to midsummer, actually a taboo for any rational festival planner. But we'll see. Perhaps there is time until then that cultural exchanges can take place beyond the network.

17. March 2021 First stereoscopic VR 360° film

We realised a particularly interesting project in Switzerland this year: our first stereoscopic VR 360° film for interview training. Definitely an exciting technology! Of course we’d love to continue testing its immersive effect in behavioural training units.

15. May 2020 The House

Angela Poschet has taken over the production management for THE HOUSE – a stop motion production from London’s Nexus Studios on behalf of Netflix. The film comprises three parts, each one designed by stop motion directors Emma de Swaef and Marc James Roels (as a team), Niki Lindroth von Bahr , and Paloma Baeza. Charlotte Bavasso, co-founder and producer of Nexus Studios, is the producer.

22. February 2020 Partner for “Bus to America”

Good news for THE BUS TO AMERICA. In EJT-Labo from France, we found a wonderful partner for the project to advance its development. The Grand-Est region is also providing support through its film subsidy programme.

20. February 2020 Mention from the German Design Awards

It has been quiet for a long time. Which only means that we have had plenty to do! We also had three reasons to celebrate this month: early in the year, the mixed-media campaign Allianz Global Investors Vertriebsinitiative Fonds (Sales initiative funds), which Frank Becher co-designed on behalf of HQ interaktive Medien, received an honourable mention from the German Design Awards. Later, we received an honourable mention from the IELA Awards, as well as the 2020 eLearning Award for two blended learning programmes that we created with and for proaktiv Management.

15. March 2019 Recommended by the Animation Magazine

THE BUS TO AMERICA is one of nine projects at Cartoon Movie that should be developed further, in the opinion of ANIMATION MAGAZINE . That makes us very happy! If you’d like more information around the project, simply send us an email: B2A@rixfilm-animation.com
