Festival start: 28 October 2024      Festival end: 03 November 2024

Animacción is an international festival of animated short films, aimed to bring attention to the artistic potential of a whole new generation of animators.

Organized by the cultural association "Ánimas Anónimas", the festival returns this year for its 7th edition.

The call arises from our desire to increase the cultural offer of the city of A Coruña and its region, offering a sample of an artistic discipline with great creative potential, known worldwide, but little spread (me suena menos científico que disseminated xD) and supported locally.

The selected short films will be screened from December 12th to 18th, in the metropolitan area of ​​A Coruña. The public attending these screenings will proclaim the winning piece with their votes. There will be also an award for the best children's short film, chosen by the students of several schools in A Coruña and the area.

Besides the screenings, we will schedule different talks and activities, for all audiences, related to the world of animation, so we can create a bridge between artists of this discipline and the public.

- Audience award: There will be a cash prize of 300€ to the first classified, which will be selected by the public.

- CREA Animation Award: for the best director, endowed with 200€. Awarded by the jury formed by the association of creators CREA.

- Mellor Curta Galega Award: We open a specific category for Galician creators, to show and encourage local talent.

- Children award: Prize awarded by the students of the schools that participate in the call.

The prizes are subject to Spanish law, so the pertinent withholdings and taxes will be applied in each case.
