International and innovative

In the "International Competition”, artistic bravado rubs shoulders with first-class auteur films, while top-quality entertainment features alongside experiments and challenges. We've selected the most beautiful gems from the latest animated short films. In the four programme blocks tales of the strange and the familiar or forgetfulness and remem- brance are waiting to be discovered. The screen is set to host films that are shrill and loud, experimental and classic, gentle and cheery – the only thing they will never be is boring.


At the festival, an international jury evaluates all the film entries. The jury as well as audiences honour the most outstanding works with our coveted Fantoche prizes.
