Izumi Yoshida
Animation director, animator (2d and stop motion), VFX artist (including composition), illustrator

As a newly-minted PhD graduate from the esteemed Polish Film School in Lodz, I have embarked on a journey that melds my passions for animation and academia. Currently, I have the privilege of contributing as a faculty member at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, where I endeavor to foster creativity and ingenuity in the artists of tomorrow.
With a portfolio as a Director that boasts animated films like "Mirage," "KIGO," and "KINKI," I have been honored with screenings and accolades at various film festivals. My expertise doesn't end here; I am also a proficient Japanese language translator.
My academic pursuits are intertwined with my artistic vision. My scholarship gravitates toward the world of animated films, with a particular focus on artistic and abstract animation as well as studio productions - anime holding a special place in my heart. Additionally, the rich tapestry of Japanese mythology, coupled with the spine-tingling allure of horror in literature and film, forms the cornerstone of my research.
As I tread the path of both an artist and scholar, my objective is to continually push the boundaries of animation and deepen the understanding of the cultural narratives that shape it.
