Imaginaria Fest Issues Call for Entries

Italy's Imaginaria International Animation Festival, newly relaunching in 2014, issues a call for submissions for animated films produced after December 31, 2009.


Show your animated film to an international audience! In 2014 Italy’s Imaginaria will again open up the doors to the great world of animated film. 

Imaginaria was founded in 2003. Beginning in 2014, Imaginaria is launching a new experience: to join, in a natural continuity, animation films and the most innovative international movements of illustration and comics art. An event that is ever-eccentric and “specialized” rather than the usual regional audiovisual programming.

The encounter between the animation films, illustration and comics is today the real challenge for Imaginaria, its natural evolution/vocation placing itself as the only international event of its kind among all the audiovisual events of the panorama Puglia and beyond.

The Imaginaria International Animation Festival (IAF) offers a platform to filmmakers, directors and production companies to present their films and give to fans of animated film the chance to watch animated short and feature films of all genres for five days.

It is the art of animation and the promotion of up-and-coming talent that makes up the core of the IAF.

Filmmakers are invited to submit animated films produced after December 31, 2009, to one of the festival’s following competition categories:

  • BestAnimated Film – 2D
  • BestAnimated Film – 3D
  • BestAnimated Film (Music Video)
  • BestAnimated Film (student film competition)

The deadline for submissions is May 31, 2014.

To submit your film, access the Imaginaria International Animation Festival online registration form. After completing the form, films can be submitted via a file sharing service such as Dropbox or WeTransfer. Please read the regulations carefully. Once a films has been submitted, the applicant agrees to the regulations and accepts that the film can be selected for any of the competitions or for another program section.
