REX is back for its 7th year! As usual, we will continue to bring the most exciting European animation to Stockholm, Sweden. Dates for the main festival are October 29-November 7 and our main venue for the physical festival will again be beautiful Zita Folkets Bio! In addition to the main physical festival, we plan for an online festival and a series of additional special screening formats to bring animation to a wider audience during whatever circumstances will be in the autumn of 2021. The festival presents animated shorts and feature films from Europe and also includes a rich program of workshops, talks, and the Rex Animation Student Award, an annual award for Swedish student productions. And yes, we also have a section dedicated to kids! The Open Call is for animated shorts produced in Europe.
