21st Countryside Animafest on August 10-13

Countryside Animafest Cyprus Views of the World 21st edition!
The festival will take place at the village of Salamiou, from the 10th to the 13th of August, which has been the home of Animafest for the last five years.
41 exceptionally inspiring films from 17 countries were selected in the International Competition, to be screened under the stars in the enchanting rural setting that our local and international audiences have come to love.
The selection was made by Yiorgos Tsangaris, artistic director of Animafest Cyprus, and Gerben Schermer (NL), curator of animation and contemporary art, and it includes works by promising newcomers as well as acclaimed masters.
Our aim is, as always, to expand our perception of animation by showcasing the work of authors that dare to surprise us, whether through their form, story-telling or content.
The programming is a delicate balance between experimental and narrative films, made with a range of techniques, encompassing everything from new technologies to the diachronic artistic principles of traditional methods. For the first time the international competition is divided in the categories narrative and non-narrative short.
The festival gives a platform to some of the most cutting-edge voices of the contemporary animation scene while always reaching out to the audience- which is our target and our focus.
