The Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film
Once a year, around April and May Stuttgart becomes the centre of international animation films. Since 1982, the Festival of Animated Film invites directors, production
companies, distributors and international sales companies to present
their animated films.
Artistic animation films and the support of young talents represent the core of the festival. The various competition programmes are endowed with prize money of tenthousands of euros in total. The unique combination of the Festival of Animated Film, the Animation Production Day and FMX, the conference on Animation. Effects, Games and Interactive Media, has established the event as one of the most important world-wide for financing and developing animation projects.
The festival, founded in 1982, has developed into an essential event for animation film in Germany over the past 30 years and is one of the biggest and most important festivals for animated films around the world. Embedded in the unique setting of Stuttgart’s city centre, the open-air cinema adds a very special touch to the festival’s atmosphere. With the help of a big LED screen and right in the middle of Schlossplatz, the festival was able to present animated short and feature films starting at noon for the first time in 2011. About 80,000 visitors come to Stuttgart to watch around 1,000 films at the open-air location and at Stuttgart’s Innenstadtkinos – the centrally located cinemas. Among those visitors were prominent guests from the movie and animation sector such as Oscar winner Andrew Ruhemann and Oscar maker Ron Diamond, director Pierre Coffin, the actors Christoph Maria Herbst, Boris Aljinovic, Cosma Shiva Hagen, Andrea Sawatzki, Benno Führmann and many more.
