Pink Twins’ Overlook in the international competition of Annecy International Animated FF

Pink Twins’ Overlook (2017) will have its international festival premiere in the international competition of Annecy International Animated Film Festival, held in Annecy, France, from June 12–17. Established in 1960, the festival is one of the most important festivals dedicated to animated film. Overlook is included in the programme “Off Limits”.

Impossible architecture, an ancient burial ground and a lure for psychotic janitors were the building blocks of Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining. In this story vignette, chaos animators Pink Twins add zero gravity and a rupture in space-time continuum to the mix and serve a taster of subtle cosmic horror.

Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha (b. 1978) and Vesa Vehviläinen (b. 1974), based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, their videos work on the crossing of visual art and music. Live Pink Twins deliver improvised digital soundscapes, often combined with video screenings. Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals in all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.
