Festival Description:

Animatopia was born out of our desire to sow in the heart of the children the seed of a world without boundaries, through a form of art which is also limitless: Animation. We strongly believe in the hidden talent of the “small ones”. Our objective is to show our children the loveliest, funniest, most exciting and most inspiring animated short films from all over the world, specially from those corners of the planet in which the greatest talents are still undiscovered.
