Pictoplasma
Conference & Festival
Berlin


08 – 12 MAY 2019

Coming May 2019, the annual Pictoplasma Festival turns Berlin into the world’s epicenter of character design and art—and a vibrant meeting point for a diverse scene of international artists, illustrators, filmmakers, and game, graphic or product designers. Creators and producers meet for a central conference to exchange strategies for figurative aesthetics, while the wider festival invites the general public to discover new trends. Cutting edge screenings bring the latest animation to the big cinema screen, numerous exhibitions throughout the city present original works and outstanding character craftsmanship, and performances put the characters into direct play with the audience.
