Cartoon Club – International Festival of Animation Cinema, Comics and Games, now at its 40th edition, is one of the best known festivals on the Italian scene.

It is a remarkable window for animation works, short films in particular – fiction, educational, experimental, computer graphic – and with a whole section solely dedicated to comics: Riminicomix.

The Festival features SHORT ANIMATED FILMS in various sections:

CARTOON CLUB AWARD, open to short animated films made by professional filmmakers and production companies.

SIGNOR ROSSI AWARD, open to animated films made by secondary school and university students, and by the students of animation film schools.

CARTOON KIDS AWARD, among the titles submitted to either Cartoon Club Award or to Signor Rossi Award, the Festival direction will select, at their own discretion, some short animated films aimed at a children’s audience. An all-children’s jury will select the winner among these films.

INTERNATIONAL PANORAMA, a non-competitive section open to European and non-European animated short films.

CARTOON JUNIOR AWARD, open to short animated films realized within workshops for children, in Italy or abroad.


Furthermore, the festival features:
- exhibitions;
- educational and social projects;
- workshops in local schools;
- one of the most popular and entertaining Cosplay conventions in Italy.
- publication of books and catalogues.
The festival takes place in Rimini in various locations, from downtown to the beach, in the month of July.

• Signor Rossi Award: consisting of a cash prize of 1,200 Euro and a "Sig. Rossi plate";

• Cartoon Club Award: "Cartoon Club plate";

• Cartoon Kids Award: “Cartoon Kids plate”.

Wherever possible, the winning authors or their representatives will be invited to attend the Festival’s closing night to collect their prizes.
