Filmmakers, producers, distributors and friends of animated films are invited to submit shorts and features for the 7th Anim’est International Animation Film Festival. The deadline for submissions is June 15, 2012.

The Anim’est fest has announced the creation of a brand new competitive section: Minimest – reserved for shorts appropriate for children aged 4-12 years old. An award will be presented to one of the shorts, based on a decision made by a jury of children.

With a smart and nonconformist audience, Anim’est has become Bucharest’s most loved film festival and a growing name on the animation scene of Europe, recognized as a member of the Cartoon European Association of Animation Film since the 5th edition. Our presentations, workshops, masterclasses and round tables provide a great opportunity to get in touch with the latest creations and make contacts.
