What is the Othello International Motion Art Biennial?
Othello International Motion Art Biennial is organized by EMU Communication Faculty and financially supported by the Eastern Mediterranean University. The biennial takes its name from the Othello Castle in Famagusta, which is mentioned in Shakespeare's famous play, and symbolizes and emphasizes the relationship of the city with culture and arts.
With the awareness that universities' support towards culture, arts and creativity is one of their important roles, the main motivation of the Biennial is to bring together both national and international design and film students who are on their way to become artists, and by encouraging young artists to reflect their own thoughts by using animated art. It aims to create a productive and motivating environment where ideas and experiences can be shared.
The main purpose is to help cinema and visual communication design students, who can produce original ideas with motion arts and contribute to the field with different perspectives, put their theoretical knowledge into practice, to contribute to the development of short film production in the international arena, and to ensure that the audience meets short films.
