17th Animateka is moving ONLINE!


Despite the efforts and unshakable optimism of the Animateka festival team, who, until the last minute hoped that we would be able to watch diverse and above all excellent animated film products from all around the world on the big screen again this year, we decided to move this edition online due to the epidemiological situation.

17th Animateka will be extended and will take place between 30 November and 9 December on a user-friendly and tested platform that will allow us not only to show films, but also a wider festival experience of lectures and discussions of AnimatekaPRO, talks with directors and various events of the accompanying programme, with which we will enrich your viewing experience from home.

We will make sure that the festival spirit which Animateka is notorious for will be present online. At the same time, the experience of the online edition opens a unique opportunity to decentralize the festival which will spread beyond Ljubljana and as such will enable the experience of an animated universe to the whole Slovenia and the wider world.


You can check out the festival trailer, made by Matej Lavrenčič and Matjaž Moraus Zdešar, here:

Part of the festival programme – most of the feature animated films and a retrospective of Croatia visiting – will be screened next year in the Silvan Furlan Hall in the Slovenian Cinematheque due to copyright restrictions and other limitations.

The entire programme will be published on 15 November, and until then we invite you to discover the already published sections of the programme on our website.

This year the visuals of the festival were prepared by Andrej Štular, the internationally renowned artist from the field of illustration, comics, painting, sculpture, photography, film, as well as puppetry and scenography, who has had exhibitions all over the world and has published five independent comic albums. His work often includes recycling, and it is in this style that he is also presenting himself with this year’s image of Animateka.
