Festival Description:

TAF Thessaloniki Animation Festival  is based in the heart of Thessaloniki, a town in Greece with over 1.200.000 population and 150.000 students. Thessaloniki is full of culture, artistic events and festivals. TAF is the only animation festival in town and every year it gets bigger and bigger.
