For Animation and Film Festivals & Events


  • 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.

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



Dramatic and otherwordly: Substance by Utrecht School of the Arts students.

A man driven insane by the loss of his wife finds an unexpected solution.


 The major advantage of Substance is its colored, hallucinatory world that overcomes the gloomy and anguished behavior of the main character.  Not at all a rigidly defined environment, it enhances the feeling of being together in a no man's land.

Quentin Haberham,  Bram Vermaas,  Tim de Haan,  Wesley Vet, Rutgher Jousma, Esther Diepenhorst and Dieuwer Feldbrugge are 4th year animation students at the Utrecht School of the Arts in 2013.
