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

What We Do:

We don't just host films, this is the job of the (many) social channels. We present, interview and review animation shorts, and we prioritize equally strong storytelling and engaging (or even innovating) film aesthetics.

When to Submit:

  • If you have a finished film planning to be online soon, send it to us to present, interview or review. The sooner we can watch it, the better.
  • If you have a finished film that travels/ is about to travel in the film festival circuit, and want to boost its visibility, you can also submit it to our Shorts Corner (above conditions apply)
  • If you have a short animation project in development (not a finished film), and need feedback on its story development, you could head into our affiliated Scheriaa Productions (Email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
