Meet the International Jury 2022
Hi! My name is Katya Mikheeva, I am an animation artist and a freestyle dancer. In my works I love to use the combination of these two art forms, projecting my body-moving experience to the animation I create. I make character-driven films, based on relationships and the fun absurdity of daily life.
