ANIMAFANTASIA (Submission deadline: May 25, 2017)

International Student Film Festival of Animation ANIMAFANTASIA was founded in 2011 under the name FLASH – International Student Film Festival of Animation –, and now the project is reconverted in the 2017 edition under a new title – ANIMAFANTASIA.

The aim of the ANIMAFANTASIA project is reviving Romanian animation film at the European level, the dissemination of innovative creations in the field of animation in national/international academia and the creation of partnerships and collaboration in view of strengthening inter-regional dialogue among the younger generation of students.

ANIMAFANTASIA aims to dispel the popular misconception that animation is just cartoons for kids by screening the broadest possible range of intelligent, entertaining and provocative current films on offer from all around the Europe as well as retrospectives and specialised sessions from trends/animators who don’t normally elicit such attention.
