* Wednesday, November 15 Sunday, November 19, 2000. Utrecht, Holland.
This year the Holland Animation Film Festival will hold its first international competition for independent animation films. With this competition, the festival sets out to promote the short, artistic animation film, and, as a result, encourage media attention toward independent animation. The competition is divided into two separate categories: one for narrative film and one for non-narrative film. In both categories a Grand Prix will be awarded. The maximum length of films entered for the competition is 35 minutes. In addition to this new competition, an international competition for applied animation will be held. Besides the Grand Prix, prizes will be awarded in four categories: commercials, music videos, and informational and educational films. In addition to that, a prize for best campaign will be awarded. Work from young animators will be featured in the competition from students from the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxemburg.
