Festival Description

ReAnima is the annual international festival for animated films in Bergen, the second-largest city of Norway. By using our experiences in the animated world, we want to help create a wider audience that can enjoy and understand what animated art is all about. As we organize ReAnima International Animation Festival, embracing novelty, variety and international influences is our means to achieve our goals

ReAnima offers various animated film screenings and animated film contests for both adults and kids. The festival also arranges many other activities, such as animation workshops, lectures on animation, master classes with professional animators, interviews and debates, exhibitions, and so on.
