First flight is a tour showcasing four animated short films, including 'Wade', 'Mother', 'Beyond Borders' and 'Watchmaker: At Time's End', produced with love at Ghost Animation, Kolkata.
Each film varies wildly in technique, duration, tone and directorial voice. After the screenings, meet all six partners from Ghost and take an in-depth look at the process behind each short, and interact with the directors to ask them any questions you may have.
A major arrival on the Indian animation scene, Ghost hopes that by touring, a new culture and demand for independent animated short film making can be stirred in the country.
