Coronavirus crisis response: Due the current situation with Covid19 and latest restrictions in Finland we have decided to move festival to other dates. Audience's health is naturally the most important thing in this situation. There is some uncertainties still with this whole situation so new dates will be announce later when all details are set.
The 2020 theme is Estonian animation. Animatricks festival programme consists of short animated films, VR-animations, seminars and much more.

2019 Festival Coverage (Archive)
In 2019, Animatricks Animation Festival did not take place.
From the Animatricks Festival Team: First of all we’d like to offer our apologies for being quiet for too long. This is because with a heavy heart we have to inform that due to big organisational changes and other unforeseen challenges the Animatricks 2019 festival will not be organised.
However our most sincere intention is that Animatricks will not disappear but rather takes this sidestep now as a chance to rejuvenate and seek a new form of execution and co-operations as a festival and other screenings.
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to all of you whom have been with us in past years as the organising team, audience, fans and authors. It has been our utmost pleasure to share the great talent and art of animation to all fans of this unique art form.
Until the next frame
NB: 2020 Dates are tentative
