For Animation Filmmakers:
For Animation and Film Festivals & Events Professionals
Finland's oldest purely animation-based festival seeks to bring animated short films and animation art into the public eye and to introduce a host of diverse, thematically versatile films from all over the world. Animatricks International Animation Festival serves both as a venue for presenting films and as a meeting place for filmmakers and animation enthusiasts. Our repertoire features retrospectives by Finnish filmmakers, theme screenings, feature films, children's films, workshops as well as competitions. Animatricks Film Festival is arranged by Finland's umbrella organisation for animators, Finnish Animation Guild.
