Festival Description

The main trait that distinguishes Nikozi Animation Festival from other international festivals is that it is not a traditional competition that determines the winners in various nominations – Festival presents old and newly created masterpieces side by side. Festival participants and attendants get the opportunity to find out about new trends and developments in animation art around the world, meet with famous film directors and other representatives of cinematography. For the youth interested in animation arts, festival offers seminars and master classes. The students of Nikozi Art School present their work and performances in singing, dancing, theater and animation arts to the guest of the Festival. The Festival is accompanied with a cultural program that offers performances in classical and folk music and sightseeing trips.
