Festival Description

ANIMAPHIX International Animated Film Festival aims to promote and disseminate the art and culture of animation cinema in Sicily, opening the gate to collaborations, productions and co-productions with other European countries, predicting a transnational movement; to look for the most capting innovations and original languages that the animated film offers, proposing a wide range of initiatives to involve a wide heterogeneous audience throughout the territory.

The festival, oriented toward the independent world of authorial animation, is structured in different sections with competitive and noncompetitive programmes. The competitive programme explores not only the more traditional productions, but also the technological experimentations, offering, therefore, a wide overview of the various ramifications of the animation sector.

The other sections dedicate a wide amount of space to retrospectives, in-depth analysis, and meetings with the authors, cartes blanches and focus on the authors and films coming from the guest of honor country, to reflect on the creative and productive differences also through forms of cooperation and exchange of experiences with other partner festivals. Every year there are professional workshops, laboratories and programs for children and a program dedicated to young talents in training.

Animaphix is a project organised by Qb Cultural Association to support animated cinema, art and culture, promote young talents and high-quality films, strongly oriented towards the authorial and experimental world.
