About the artist/director:

Priit Tender (b.1971) is an Estonian animator, and the director, designer, and writer of many short animated films produced in both a drawn and stop motion tradition. His work is driven by surreal imagery, black humour, and the punishing bliss of the dark existential journey. To date, Tender’s filmography includes 17 films produced between 1996 and 2016, many of which have earned him prizes and nominations from international animation film festivals around the world, including Ottawa, Annecy, Hiroshima, Dresden, Fredrikstad, and Utrecht. More information on Priit Tender can be found at

Presented by TAIS, in partnership with EstDocs Film Festival, LIFT, OCAD University, Pleasure Dome, and Eesti Joonisfilm.
