Apart from national and international competition programs, the festival offers workshops and lectures held by the field's best players, screenings of experimental animation and video art, topical out-of-competition screenings, and a program for children. Our main aim is to prove that animation is not merely a tool to entertain kids but a form of contemporary art in which technological innovations — with the involvement of intellectual audience — tackle modern societal issues.
