2020 Festival Coverage:

(Festival Statement): The general health situation caused by the COVID-19 Virus pandemics, as well as the incomplete and uncertain predictions regarding its further development have posed a brief dilemma regarding the format for this year’s Animanima Festival edition. Determined however to behave responsibly and professionally in line with the expectations of our fellow citizens, we have decided to prevent any risk and stage an ONLINE edition of the Animanima 2020 Festival.

You are welcome to watch the auteur animated films from the latest world production, animated commercials, children’s programme and other featured contents from your home, at any time that best suits you between 5th and 7th of November this year. We hope that our next edition planned for autumn 2021 will be a time for a reunion at the cinema hall!
