About the festival

A lot of the people think that the animation equals a cartoons for the children. An opinion like this could not be more wrong! A fine example of the fact that the situation is completely different is International Animated Film Festival Animocje. This event is focused on an ambitious cinema searching for its artistic character.
We want to acquaint our audience with the most interesting authors and the unlimited possibilities of the animation. We also give the viewer of the Animocje a chance to explore the practical dimension of this field of art by extensive educational section, including the workshops.
We also implement some programme priorities. We expect the animated movie to be daring, interesting and innovative in terms of the animating solutions and an outstanding application of a traditional techniques.
Through the international competition, the Animocje provides an opportunity to get to know with the latest film productions from all over the world. A special screenings of the feature animated movies and a thematic presentations of the short films, allow to discover the animation in a new context.
We also pay attention to the relations between animation and the other arts - music, video games, visual arts and acting. Since 2014 we are the only polish festival to award A Dubbing Achievement Prize to the Masters and the Mistresses of the animated movie dubbing.
Attending Animocje is a great experience and an artful feast. That is why we encourage you to come, exchange the experience, share your opinions and meet our guests - the authors and the animation connoisseurs.
The festival has been organized in the Municipal Cultural Center in Bydgoszcz since 2011. Its creator and the coordinator is Weronika Płaczek.
