The international Festival Animánie is the largest and oldest competitive showcase of audiovisual works by children and young people up to 26 years of age. The competition traditionally attracts short animated films from all around the world, and the dramaturgical board has selected a total of 120 films from several hundreds of entries.

The selected animated films will compete in three categories according to the age of their creators: the MINI ( under 13 years old), MIDI (14-19 years old) and MAXI (20-26 years old). The winners will be decided by an international jury, which will award the festival's Animánička Award in each category.

Starting this year, we have also decided to award the extraordinary Honza Příhoda Award as a tribute to the former long-time festival director.

Relatively newly, Festival Animanie also organizes a showcase of games made by young creators.
