Anima: The Brussels Animation Festival Goes Virtual

The 40th edition moves completely online; over 250 movies will be available on demand during the festival, which runs February 12-21.

The 40th edition of Anima: The Brussels Animation Festival from February 12-21, will be completely online using its new platform - Anima Online. The platform will be unveiled at a press conference on January 26.

“You probably already guessed it, but we wanted to believe it to the end,” announced the Anima Team. “It’s with a heavy heart that the Festival has had to give up the idea of an onsite 40th edition, due to the developments in the health crisis. But we are also very pleased to announce that the exceptional and very rich program will be available throughout Belgium on the new Anima Online platform.”

Much of the program scheduled to be screened in cinemas will be available for viewing online for the duration of the festival with more than 250 films offered on demand. There will also be a program of live and virtual events.
