Moe Koyano – Jurado
Moe Koyano, is an animation director from Japan, and also the VAF (Viborg Animation Festival in Denmark) Artist of the Year 2017.
Moe graduated from Tokyo Polytechnic University in 2012 and Tokyo University of the Arts in 2014. Her graduate film Mrs. KABAGOdZILLA was screened at several festivals including Annecy International Film Festival, Animac and Holland Animation Film Festival. Moe likes to create experimental animation. Her work shows a wide variety of emotions – as she enjoys creating contrast – between pain and happiness.
Her style was also on display throughout the VAF festival in the form of postcards, posters and the VAF trailer – wherein the theme “Kawaii & Epikku” plays to Moe Koyano’s strengths.
