ANIFILM is an International Festival of Animated films that

  • serves as an annual meeting ground for film professionals and moviegoers alike
  • creates space for promotion of both the new trends and the most interesting developments in the history of animation
  • offers stage for positive confrontation between film professionals from all over the world, for their discussions and for making new contacts
  • supports ongoing as well as brand new animation projects, their creators, producers and distributors
  • aspires to become a cultural project in the long term representing and promoting the Czech Republic and the town of Třeboň in the world

This year’s festival takes place in Třeboň from May 3rd to May 8th 2011. In the six days of the festival we will be screening the newest and the most discussed films by Czech and foreign authors. The festival will screen notable contemporary animated films in Czech or international premiere and it will also introduce films that have already taken part in some of the world’s largest festivals, but so far haven’t been screened in the Czech Republic.

The screenings will take place in Kino Světozor, Divadlo J. K. Tyla and the Roháč Culture Centre. The additional programme of the festival will be hosted by Výstavní sál pod věží, Zámecké galerie and Besedy.
