AniNation 2019

The AniNation Festival, the largest animation festival in Israel, returns to Jerusalem. Five days with the best animation films from around the world, artist workshops, the cutting edge of local creators and VIP guests from overseas, VRAR events and gimmings, exhibitions, lectures, the first of its kind in Israel and abroad.


In cooperation with AniFilm Cezch Republic will be represented by 14 original short animation created after 1989. 

Throughout its 18-year-history, the international festival of animated films in Třeboň has been focusing on specific audio-visual art commonly called animation. Anifilm, much like animation itself, is universal. By its nature, it can mediate the exchange of information, influences and inspirations between film authors, students, dramaturges, film and television professionals or game designers in general. Anifilm, as the only event of its kind in the Czech Republic, tries to reflect this field of activity and include all potential groups into the interaction. It uses several methods: a) its film programme with a wide international competition reflecting modern impulses and trends, original topics, retrospectives and unusual perspectives on archive footage; b) industry programme: lectures, meetings, expert introductions and an expert programme include presenting of feature film projects in development, meetings with the authors and workshops.

Czech Animation Now

In this selection of short films you can discover brand new Czech creations. It is very diverse portfolio of contemporary Czech production offering shorts by students (universities still represent the most active incubator of talent and production), films by experienced authors, music videos or experimental works. One of the main goals of the festival is covering all domestic creations and for this reason Czech Horizon (Český obzor) competition category was established recently. And all of the presented films took a part of that national contest.
