Dear Readers, Spring sunshine has finally arrived here and along with it calls for animation festivals. ReAnimania is a very excellent festival, I know people involved with it, and encourage you to send your films to the festival.
The mandate of the ReAnimania Int. Animation Film Festival of Yerevan (ReA IAFFY) is to celebrate the vibrant community of animation films, producers and animation artists in Armenia, on the Southern Caucasian region and beyond.
The 5th ReAnimania International Animation Film Festival of Yerevan will be held from the 2nd of November to the 8th of November 2013. It's worth mentioning that this year "ReAnimania" IAFFY's 5-year jubilee coincides with the 75th anniversary of Armenian animation art.
Since our beginnings as the ReAnimania Int. Animation Film Festival of Yerevan in 2009, our event has attracted more than 9000 spectators/audience, 87 sponsors, 66 industry judges/juries, 28 Junior Juries, 21 speakers, and many other significant educational and business leaders within and outside of the film and Animation community. Other accomplishments include:
- Over 500 entries received.
- More than 400 films screened, between, over 400 short and more than 25 feature films screened.
The festival is led by Board Members, such as, Mrs. Tiziana Losche -Director of Annecy Int. Animation film festival (France), Max Howard-Director and founder of EXODUS animation production company (US), Susie Wilson- Int. Animation film festival programmer (Scotland) and local professionals, advisers and core staff, and is run entirely by dedicated volunteers.
