For Animation and Film Festivals & Events Professionals


  • Zippy Frames hosts an extended database of call for entries from animation festivals. A large part of its news roundup covers animation festivals and film festival news. However, not everything can be covered with the same depth and extent as it could (and should) have been. If you're interested in getting in talks and an offer for a festival promotion agreement, contact our Head Editor (vassilis AT zippyframes DOT com)


  • For festivals, conferences, film promotions, companies and products related to the animation industry, we offer reviews, interviews or video reports that promote your services or products in a creative and friendly way. For more info, email: info AT zippyframes DOT com



With the current proliferation of online festival and other treats (films available for a certain amount of dates, curated online playlists), sometimes it is easy to forget cultural animation festival moments captured on video.

We dug through 5 major animation festival archives of 2010, exactly 10 years ago: Anima Brussels, Animafest Zagreb, Annecy Festival, Cinanima Festival, and Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film . Below you'll find both a festival trailer (or leader), and the festival impressions. Just to remember and be inspired. This is the first part of our tribute.
