Festival description:

ANIMASIVO Festival was founded in 2008 as the first film festival space focused on the promotion of the animated films in Mexico. ANIMASIVO provides a space for both national and international experimental works. The Festival is dedicated to the exploration and exploitation of the most experimental and hybrid art of animation, its possibilities in space, and its combination with other media. Since 2010, ANIMASIVO NÓMADA has traveled across Mexico and other countries to showcase animated experimental works, and since its inception in 2010, has screened over 600 animated shorts, and has been invited to showcase at over 10 different countries.
