His latest movie, Anomalisa, co-directed by Duke Johnson, recently won the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival. The darkly comedic and surreal stop-motion journey of a man's long night of the soul, Anomalisa confirms Charlie Kaufman's place amongst the most important of American filmmakers, and announces Duke Johnson as a major creative force.

Some of the greatest animation filmmakers joined forces to create an animated adaptation from Kahlil Gibran's literary masterpiece. The project was coordinated by Oscar winning Roger Allers, director of the Lion King. Anilogue will officially open on November 25, Wednesday evening with the premiere of Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet.
Inspired by the beloved classic, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet is a richly animated tale of an unlikely friendship between a young, mischievous girl and an imprisoned poet. Featuring the voices of Liam Neeson, Salma Hayek and Frank Langella, Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet blends a charming adventure tale with vignettes based on Gibran’s inspiring writings on love, work, children, freedom and marriage, each stunningly brought to life by a different renowned international animation artist.
French, Romanian, Korean and Japanese films compete for the Best Animated Feature award of Anilogue 2015. Check out the competition line-up.
Our main festival venue, Uránia National Film Theatre is separated from the party district by a wide, six-lane road, with no crosswalk in acceptable vicinity.
