Cinanima - Espinho International Animated Film Festival

About the Company

CINANIMA is an animation film festival organised by NASCENTE – Cooperative Society with Cultural Purposes and by Espinho’s City Hall. Every since its first edition, back in 1976, it has been developing a regular activity divulging this form of cinema and its authors, being, therefore, considered a precursor of the cultural decentralisation in Portugal. At the same time, CINANIMA has won international recognition, out of the main cultural poles of Lisbon and Oporto.
Films may compete in the following international categories: short films (with lenght subcategories, student and commissioned subcategory, animated documentary), feature films (over 50 minutes). There is also a national competition that is designed for Portuguese directors and productions. Exhibitions, workshops, masterclasses and Q&A, meetings between the directors, other professionals and the audience in general are also part of the Festival’s programme.
