Anima, Brussels Cartoon and Animated Film Festival, seeks to promote cartoons and animated films from all over the world. It also seeks to foster a dialogue between professionals, filmmakers and the public, and to raise awareness of quality animation among film and television distributors.
The Festival is organising an international competition as well as a national competition for films produced in Belgium. Both competitions are open to all animated films and make no distinction between formats or techniques, regardless of its geographic origin.
Films can be entered for Anima if they correspond to the definition of animation given by the International Animated Film Association in an extraordinary General Meeting in Zagreb on 19.6.1980: "The art of animation involves the creation of animated images using various techniques other than live action." Films using these techniques mixed to live action are also accepted.
There is no entry fee.
Please note: 1 October 2012 is the deadline for Entry form, previewing DVD and documents. The deadline for the arrival of the films is 13 January 2013.
Open to any artist worldwide.
Amongst the official categories, some shorts will constitute an international competition and some others a national competition, with money prizes from €1.000 up to €2.500 (approx 3350 USD). An Audience Prize will also be awarded.
The festival also nominates its selection of films for the Cartoon d’Or, from the European films that win prizes.
Anima 2013 will take place in Brussels (Belgium) from 8 to 17 February, 2013.
