We are thrilled to announce that the 11th-anniversary edition of International Student Animated Film Festival Animafantasia will take place in Iassy City (Romania) from October, 16th through October 28th, 2023.

We are lucky to have as our creed a well-defined and over one decade-long mission of championing the independent voice of animation creators.

We imagined a different landscape for independent artists, one where the work they wished to make could be developed and supported outside of the studio system.

We created a new space for imaginative possibility and creative community. We call that space ANIMAFANTASIA.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ANIMATION FILM FESTIVAL ANIMAFANTASIA 2023 has an important aim to be among the top student film festivals in the world, maintaining our position as the most important student festival in East Europe and continuing to reach larger audiences every year.
