Call for entries Anim’est 2016

It is our pleasure to launch our call for entries for Anim’est International Animation Film Festival 2016.

Have you just finished your film or are working on a film that will be ready by June 2016? We would be happy to receive it for selection. The 11th edition will take place in October and the deadline for submission is June 20th.


We are looking for your short or feature animated films produced after 1st January 2015, which could fit one of our six competition categories:

Feature film

Short film

Student film (graduate or undergraduate)

Music Video

Romanian short film

Minimest (children’s film)


The winners get trophies, prize money and/or animation software, while the best film of the festival is shortlisted for the annual Cartoon d’Or Award.

The submission is online and free of charge. Besides, Bucharest is nice at the beginning of October and we pride in taking good care of our guests, so why not plan a trip to see the city, during a break from our screenings, workshops, master-classes or parties?


In the meantime, we keep our fingers crossed for your ongoing projects and we hope to be spoiled again by each and every film submitted to Anim’est 2016. And spread the word, we would love to make new friends, while discovering and encouraging the new projects of our old friends.
