GUEST FESTIVAL: ANIFILM, INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF ANIMATED FILM OF TŘEBOŇ

Anifilm presents… Contemporary Czech animation

In our selection you will see student films mostly. Globally, films by students overshadow almost anything (apart from the gaming industry) that Czech animation produces. They are regularly featured in selections of prestigious festivals all around the world. Among very successful recent student films we included brand new ones which have just started their festival journeys. They are all characterized by fearless design and original stories. This way you can taste most of the main Czech schools for animation.

At the same time we would like to kindly offer you films out of academy milieu. Among them the experimental piece Life in Patterns by Vojtěch Domlátil and completely fresh films like Neighbours by Martin Búřil and the winner of Anifilm national competition Walking and Running by Vít Pancíř. Together they could be seen as proof that contemporary animation scene in the Czech Republic is very promising and self-confident.
