Stuttgart received several requests whether applications for the categories Animated Series and AniMovie (animated feature-length films) will still be accepted after December 1. Since some of the pre-selection committees will start their work only in January, they decided to extend the deadline for these two categories to December 31, 2008.
The submission for the sections International Competition, Young Animation and Tricks for Kids is closed. Today, the first pre-selection committee will retreat for a week to view and discuss hundreds of films. Two more committees will meet before Christmas.
You can download the entry form on www.itfs.de. Contact for film submissions: Andrea Bauer (firstname.lastname@example.org). For the commissioned film competition Under Commission, the official deadline remains January 15, 2009. Special entry forms can be downloaded at www.itfs.de.
The 16th Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film will be held May 5-10, 2009.
