TAF • Thessaloniki Animation Festival

Greece






Description

TAF is here for the 6th consecutive year and it’s TAF-er than ever!

As we try to stay positive and active during the global health crisis, we keep spreading awareness and sharing our love for the art of animation, by going online!

We have selected the best 114 films among 2000 amazing entries that were submitted this year, and we have arranged them in 10 thematic blocks. Based on your interests, you may watch as many films as you like.

The awards for the top 3 animated films, along with the one for the best film in terms of storytelling, will be awarded by our jury members, which consist of renowned artists and professionals from the animation industry. Additionally, the best film relating to human rights, will receive a special award by the Select Respect network. What’s more, this year we have created a Balkan Award and film block, in honor of the Balkan region.

But that’s not all. Going online gives us the opportunity to become as inclusive as possible, and TAF is all about bringing people together. So, for the very first time you will be able to vote for your favourite film and become part of the Audience Award.

Apart from screenings, TAF hosts a range of events, seminars and masterclasses, and this year is no exception. During the festival, our special guests will perform webinars and lectures live, via Zoom (platform).

Last, but definitely not least, we are very excited to introduce the very first Balkan Animation Forum (BAF), bringing together artists from all over the Balkan region.

Remaining true to our spirit, there is no entrance fee for the screenings or the webinars, but there will be a limited number of virtual seats available, so stay tuned!

Welcome to TAF 6! Let's get TAF-er!
