Stuttgart Festival Of Animated Film



The 27th Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (05.-10.05.2020)

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.

The International Animation Film Festival Stuttgart (ITFS) is one of the world's largest and most important festivals for animated film. The whole spectrum of current animation filmmaking with interfaces to visual effects, architecture, art, design, games and music are presented at the festival.

Set amidst the unique scenery of the Stuttgart city centre, the Open-Air Cinema creates a very special Festival atmosphere. On a large LED wall, screenings of animated shorts and popular box-office hits start at noon and so make the ITFS a Festival for the whole family. Up to 100,000 visitors come to Stuttgart to see around 1,000 films at the Open-Air and Innenstadtkinos Stuttgart cinemas.

The International Competition the Festival’s centrepiece, featuring animated shorts of high artistic quality produced in the previous year. An international jury composed of outstanding personalities of the animation scene awards prizes up to 90.000 Euro. Among them the Grand Prix, the Lotte Reiniger Award for Animated Film and German Voice Actor Award a prize for the best German-language voice artist in a feature-length animated film. In recent years, winners of this award have been well-known speakers such as Otto Waalkes, Axel Prahl and Alexandra Maria Lara.

The GameZone invites visitors to play, presenting innovative, high-quality computer games and interactive projects at the intersection of games and animation.

Animation Production Day 2014 – Looking for submissions of animation projects

Animation Production Day (APD), an event hosted by FMX 2014, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia (April 22-25, 2014) and the 21st Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (April 22-27, 2014) takes place on April 24 and 25, 2014 for the 8th time. It is an event by Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg and Film- & Medienfestival gGmbH. As a business platform for the international animation industry the APD invites production companies worldwide to submit their animation and digital content projects for which they are searching for co-production, financing and distribution partners.

 

30 projects will be chosen for participating in the APD. In exclusive and effective 30 minutes one-to-one meetings, producers pitch their selected cinema, TV and transmedia projects to broadcasters, global distributors, publishers, funders, banks, equity investors and potential co-production partners, aiming to identify new financing pathways, production strategies and market applications. To be eligible for submission, projects must be either at the development, production or exploitation stage. The projects must have commercial potential and be marketable internationally. They must be suitable, as brand-building products, for exploitation either in formats for feature film, TV, games or mobile applications.

 

The program is complemented by the APD conference track, where top-level speakers share their strategies and visions for the future of the animation industry. A Full Access Pass gives APD participants access to the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film and to FMX, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia, giving them the opportunity, alongside their intensive one-to-one meetings, to inform themselves about current trends and productions and to make and maintain contacts in an informal atmosphere.

 

More than 200 representatives from the German and international animation industry attended APD 2013 to discuss current developments and trends in the transmedia sector. In approximately 380 individual meetings, the 32 projects selected for inclusion were evaluated in terms of brand potential, financing, and production strategy. With 76 companies and institutions from 12 countries in attendance, the APD grew by more than 10 % in comparison with the previous year.
