International Animation


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

The animated films in competition explore the body through dance and offers poetic narrative challenges, where comedy, animal spirit and physical touch are highlighted, in a time where we are still deprived of some gestures. The children have a decisive role in choosing the best animated film, in competition at the festival, as judges – the sessions will be followed by conversation and voting.


Between visions and journeys, in a current social perspective, we take, more than ever, a curatorial look based on a renewed appreciation for the power of dance as an emotional and kinetic engine of cinematographic construction.
