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.

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.
