Nowadays Animac is a rigorous, dynamic and welcoming festival continually making efforts to improve, generating new audiences and attracting those who love animation. Animac is a non-competitive film festival aimed at artists who use animation as a tool for personal expression. We go beyond the limits of traditional narrative and we seek visionaries who make independent and daring works full of energy and who take their expressive potential to the limit. Animac is also a meeting place for artists, a laboratory in which ideas are generated and relations between the different artistic disciplines are established. It is a place to dream and screen stories of the future.
