Anifilm International Festival of Animated Films in Třeboň is the most prestigious event of its kind in Central Europe. With 17 years of tradition, Anifilm is the only international festival competition of its kind in the Czech Republic. Last year, the festival welcomed more than 26,000 visitors and screened over 500 films. Thanks to the structure of the festival’s competition and its long-term high quality, experts rank Anifilm among the most prestigious festivals in the world.
Accompanying Film Programme
Apart from the competition that brings the latest impulses from the world of animation to Třeboň, the festival each year prepares a very rich accompanying film programme. It prepares special thematic showcases, retrospectives and innovative looks on archive heritage with focus on Czech animation.
Professional Programme - Lectures, Seminars, Workshops
An important and considerable part of the festival is our professional programme. Each year we offer professional lectures by historians, theorists and filmmakers connected to the festival theme and latest trends in animation. We use partly the classic lecture model, partly an established international forum (CEE Animation Forum) that also evaluates film projects and recently we also began to organize an animation job market (Animarket).
