The Festival of Animation Berlin annually presents an outstanding selection of recent regional and international animation films. Filmmakers from Berlin and from around the world thereby have an opportunity to associate with like-minded people, as well as to connect with an audience that admires and appreciates their work.
The festival aspires not only to promote filmmakers but also to pay tribute to the art of animation. As a platform where inspiration, creative exchange, innovation and communication come together it seeks to create a point of connection between both emerging and established filmmakers and an interested local audience. The festival wants to liaise with the independent and other animation filmmakers and build a strong networking platform for the various representatives of the animation industry.
