The latest from Slovak animation festival Fest Anča and its 2021 online edition.
Visitors will experience the 14th edition of Fest Anča International Animation Festival (1-4 July 2021) online, getting their regular fix of the very best animation from the last two years through their devices – despite the pandemic.
We’d been working hard on the festival all year, and since we wanted to do it just as planned, we opted to go online. We held back as long as we dared and hoped for brighter times, but even with the COVID alert system for cultural events we still couldn’t risk going live - Ivana Sujová, Fest Anča’ director.
Fest Anča’s team is organising the festival’s online version for the originally planned 1 – 4 July, with the newly-added option to watch the film programme online for a week after the festival ends. This year’s online festival theme remains Traditions.
Fest Anča will also showcase its enriched film and accompanying programme via Spanish online streaming platform Festhome.com, which makes Fest Anča the first Slovak festival to use this platform. Virtual ticket holders can enjoy the complete, unlimited film programme and parts of the accompanying programme. Concerts will be streamed on Facebook.
We chose Festhome as one of the few platforms that screens short and feature films. It uses the latest internet tech for high quality picture transmission and great viewer experience - Ivana Sujová
Viewers from Slovakia will have full access to all films, and home screening sections will be accessible to viewers from other European countries. Slovak and English subtitles will be provided.
Online tickets + bonus:
Fest Anča has launched the sale of a new series of online tickets with an additional bonus. Films will be available online up to 11 July - a week after the event. Concerts will only be available online for 24h after the event.
Limited edition ticket returns or roll-overs:
Holders of limited edition tickets for the originally planned live Fest Anča 2021 can: i) use tickets for this year’s online version, ii) roll them over to next year, or iii) get a refund.
