Submit Your Animation Short

Submit Your Animation Short

 Zippy Frames and its Shorts Corner offer a highly eclectic and comprehensive catalogue of animation shorts. Its staff picks up films that excel regardless of

  •  technique (2D, 3D animation, stop-motion including cut-out animation, pixilation etc., experimental animation)
  • subject matter (films for children, films for adults, festival films, and music videos)
  • career stage (professionals, student film directors)
  • geography (Europe, Africa, US, Australasia)


Open to all animation shorts (up to 40min)


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.
  •  The film needs to premiere at Zippy Frames (Vimeo Staff Picks are OK, but no Vimeo premieres or other publication news items preceding or simultaneous with the Zippy Frames article).

Processing Fees (per submission and single film): 

It takes time and energy to devote to a short animation film - at least, we view it that way at Zippy Frames. To ensure a smooth response time and support our effort in independent animation, we introduce the following processing fees.

  • 23 EUR 

→ Processing fees are needed to process your film, but will not necessarily guarantee inclusion. However, if your film is not selected, it will certainly guarantee feedback on our behalf with comments.

→ Payment link:

→  Please allow a sufficient period to process your submission (at least 7 working days).
→  We can't issue refunds or waivers. For all related matters and questions: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
