Our festival crew from WB Production was very busy during the long winter period. One big project was and still is a mini documentary about the World Bodypainting Festival. We invited participants from around the world who are travelling every year to Austria and call it "HOME". The WBF not only founded the modern bodypainting art movement, for many it is the home of bodypainting.
