  • We address the story aspects of your animation film; we examine its theme, plot structure, characters, context, in accordance with your already stated idea and director's own intentions. We come up with solutions to story problems you face, and provide examples of fine practices for your project.

  • Animation festival submission seems both a laborious and a mindless process for independent animation filmmakers. We can make the process seem more structured, less laborious and more promising for your festival career of your film - handled by the same people who manage Zippy Frames (via Scheriaa Productions)

For Animation and Film Festivals & Events Professionals


  • Zippy Frames hosts an extended database of call for entries from animation festivals. A large part of its news roundup covers animation festivals and film festival news. However, not everything can be covered with the same depth and extent as it could (and should) have been. If you're interested in getting in talks and an offer for a festival promotion agreement, contact our Head Editor (vassilis AT zippyframes DOT com)


  • For festivals, conferences, film promotions, companies and products related to the animation industry, we offer reviews, interviews or video reports that promote your services or products in a creative and friendly way. For more info, email: info AT zippyframes DOT com



Zippy Frames introduces a new initiative for awarding independent animation shorts.

Building on the amount and the quality of animation shorts submitted and selected in our Zippy Frames Shorts Corner,  we wanted to move one step further.

From now on, all Animation Shorts selected in our Shorts Corner, they will be evaluated by our contributors:

2 professional animation shorts and 2 student animation shorts will receive the Zippy Frames Shorts Corner Choice distinction.

Eligibility conditions

(1) The animation short needs to have been first officially submitted and selected for our Shorts Corner (read the guidelines how to submit).

(2) The animation short needs to be online at the time of evaluating. Animation shorts already selected but not currently online may be evaluated in another session, when they are publicly online (directors/producers need to notify of online status) 

Evaluations will be at regular intervals, with the first one coming up in the beginning of October. All Shorts Choice Corner recipients will have their own devoted, additional article space at Zippy Frames plus their appropriate laurel.

TIme to honour independent animation!
