Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (May 5-10, 2015) Accreditation Early Bird Rate until March 15, 2015!
Dear friends of animated film,
soon it will be here again: from May 5-10, 2015, the Stuttgart
International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS) is going to take place.
Preparations are already running at full speed. Be a part of the
ITFS and get your professional accreditation - our Early Bird rates are
available until March 15!
With more than 85,000 visitors the international
platform for animated film set a new record in 2014 and it is not very
surprising that a lot of animation professionals were among them. The ITFS offers
a great opportunity for networking and to get to know about the latest
trends, ideas and projects in animation industry. 2014 over 2,500 industry professionals were present, including producers, curators and programme makers, more than 110 buyers and representatives of TV channels such as ZDF, Super RTL, SWR, KiKa or Nickelodeon, about 180 members of the press, 340 film makers and many more.
Important industry awards like the Animated Com Award - in
the categories advertising, spatial communication and technology - are
awarded. The award show takes place as a glamorous gala at Mercedes-Benz
The award show of the German Animation Screenplay Award also features the Tricks for Kids Award for the best children’s animated series and takes place in the New Castle in Stuttgart. The event will be the prelude to the business platform Animation Production Day.
By the way: You’re still able to submit! The Animated Com Award’s deadline ends at February 13, 2015. The deadline for the German Animation Screenplay Award was extended until February 18, 2015;
As a world premiere “Raven, the Little Rascal – The Big Race” (Distributor: Universum Film, Production: Akkord Film) will be shown! A range of other highlights – like studio presentations with, among others, Laika (Portland) and Vivi Film (Brussles) as well as workshops, e.g. with 13-times Emmy awardee Josh Selig from Little Planet (New York) – are awaiting you at ITFS 2015.
Furthermore we want to announce the Call for Papers for the Symposium “Color in Animation, Comics and Literature”, which will take place at Literaturhaus Stuttgart within ITFS 2015.
