Anibar Animation Festival is truly unique.  No one involved with the running of the festival is over 26 years old, they have a strong ecological bent, and the festival is primarily organized for the 60,000 residents of Peja rather than for foreign guests.  The quality of the programing is good and included something to please everyone. I always find their Balkan Competition to be interesting, with many films that I don’t get to see at other festivals.
