International Festival of Animated Film
April 30 - May 5
The best of animated film can be seen at the 26th International Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart (Trickfilmfestival). The festival covers the entire spectrum of current developments in the field of animated film and its interfaces with architecture, art and design, and games. The films screened at cinemas in Stuttgart’s city centre and also at the “Festival Garden” – the informal and free open-air cinema on Palace Square – will delight not only film enthusiasts. The large LED projection screen allows for shows of animated short films and popular features to be screened day and night. The Festival will offer a platform to filmmakers, directors and production companies to present their films. There’s also a varied fringe programme ranging from school and studio presentations to retrospective and screenplay workshops with leading experts. The festival, founded in 1982, has developed into a core event for animation film in Germany and now ranks as one of the biggest and most important festivals.
