Anima Mundi: Call for Web/Cell Phone Submissions

Anima Mundi

The 17th annual edition of Anima Mundi, South America’s largest animation festival, is coming up this July in Rio and São Paulo. The deadline for short film submissions has already passed, but they are still accepting entries for Web and cell phone animated works.

The festival is progressive in its embrace of new media and has been running both of these categories for a number of years. Marcos Magalhaes, one of the co-founders of Anima Mundi, tells me that, “The Anima Mundi Web contest is celebrating its 10th edition (being one of the first of its kind on the Internet) and Anima Mundi Cell is in its fifth year. Both contests are very popular and disputed among Brazilian animators (open to beginners and professionals) but we want more international submissions this year!”

If you’ve created recent work for the Internet or cell phones, the festival will accept submissions until May 25. Entries can conveniently be uploaded online to their server. Rules and on-line entry forms for both competitions are available on their website AnimaMundi.com.br.

    Cool you’re spreading the word about Anima Mundi, Amid. Hopefully it’ll help it become even bigger and better. And now perhaps the Web contest is going to be so much more competitive :- )

    I live here in São Paulo and the festival is indeed great, one of the most waited events every year by the animation community.

    Brasilians have a much different sensibility to animation compared to n. america. Plus, who doesnt love traveling(*and hot Brazil!) I wished i had an entry to submit…(*sigh)
