Animateka International Animated Film Festival
Animateka is an international festival that focuses on high quality auteur animated film. Every december it presents the peak production of short animated films from Central and Eastern Europe in our main competition programme, a programme comprising the most original European student films and a programme of carefully selected international films for children and teenagers. Each year it presents various special programmes as well. Either the best contemporary works from all parts of the world, a historical glimpse at different countries, animation techniques or other topics. From the very beginning Animateka holds national premiere screenings of a selection of the newest animated feature films. Audiences of all ages have the opportunity to enjoy a rich film programme and also an abundance of events such as talks with authors, masterclasses, round tables, a regional pitching session (all within the industry-oriented platform AnimatekaPRO), workshops, exhibitions, concerts and informal gatherings. Animateka’s goal is to be a focal point where professionals from both the region and the world can meet, to create collaborations and co-productions, and at the same time attract the interest of the local public and get them to fall in love with the art of animated film.
