It is a pleasure to announce that the 17th edition of The World Festival of Animated Film will be held this September in Bulgaria’s beloved sea capital - Varna!
Once again filmmakers, colleagues, students, people from all walks of life will meet on the Black Sea coast. In five short days, moving pictures will magically tell untold stories, presentations, masterclasses, and lectures will reveal insights into the animation world.
We hope the halls are full and the emotions prevail.
All selected films will be judged by our international jury. The members of the jury are well-known professionals with experience in filmmaking and/or university teaching.
This year in support of free artists, participation in the festival will be free. Please, make sure you read the regulations (especially point 4 in Rules & Terms) and provide all needed information regarding your film before submitting it! This step is crucial for the organization and selection of your film.
Submit your films for a chance to be screened in front of a live audience in the Festival Congress Center in Varna!
