The Animation department of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest dedicates a whole month to present the diploma movies of their alumni online.

10 films will be presented online as part of the Animation department of Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest showcase initiative.

The first film’s premier is expected on the 6th July; every second day a new film will be presented to the audience, ten pieces all together.

The films are very diverse in terms of their style and they reflect an exciting overview of the young world of animation, reflecting the different creative behaviour of their directors. The order in which the films are presented is also meant to reinforce and present this colourful cavalcade.

The full lineup:
