International Animation Competition

The International Animation Competition gathers, in this edition, a total of 8 films, from 5 different countries.


The animated films this year largely appear on the threshold of the very concept of animation, with a series of proposals linked, primarily, to the real image. Among optical poems, performative objects or proposals contiguous to rotoscopy, the present selection aims at exploring the visual expression of the body in movement and proposes a set of narrative challenges far from the usual functions of animation.


Young people, as juries, have a decisive role in choosing the best animation in competition at the festival, with the sessions being followed by a vote - as well as a conversation aimed at substantiating the possibilities of dance as an emotional and kinetic engine of animated filmmaking.
