Fellow Animation Directors, Students, Teachers, Producers, Distributors & Animators!

We invite you to send short animated forms in response to the tagline of the International Animated Film Festival ANIMATOR 2023 – SEARCHING FOR YOURSELF. These can be animated comments, reflections and interpretations created especially in response to the Festival tagline, as well as short films made earlier, or even a long time ago. The production date does not matter. What is important is how the submitted work resonates with the ANIMATOR 2023 Festival main theme. The submission deadline is February 7th, 2023.

Please submit the animations in the .MP4 or .MOV (codec H.264) video file format, in Full HD 1920×1080 (or higher) resolution to the following drive (login: office@animator-festival.com; pass: AnImAtOrFeStIvAL1):

Alongside a short summary and 2 stills from the film sent to the following e-mail address: office@animator-festival.com

The SEARCHING FOR YOURSELF slogan and programme section will refer to the process of formation of one’s identity. It responds to the need to self-define and define one’s position, role, attitude towards other people, issues, problems and challenges of the modern world. How we discover ourselves in the context of social interactions and the multiplicity of roles we assume are the main threads and issues that we will look at at the ANIMATOR 2023 Festival.

SEARCHING FOR YOURSELF is the tagline and the corresponding main section of the programme of the 16th International Animated Film Festival ANIMATOR, which will take place between 21st and 25th June 2023 in Poznan, Poland and online between 26th and 30th of June 2023.
