What is ReAnima?

ReAnima is the first independent animated film festival in Bergen, Norway’s second largest city. We emerged as a response to the increasing need to give the city a space of interaction with and diffusion of animated art in all its variety: traditional, conceptual, experimental and any other possibilities within the animated image.

Our main goal is to attract the greatest possible audience by providing the best selection of national and international animation, with visual art interventions in different parts of the city. We expect an active interaction from the public and we commit to arousing interest and curiosity for animated art in its numerous expressions.

Our long-term goal is to make ReAnima a point of reference for global animation; a platform in which international creation is enriched by influences by creators from North to South and from East to West without preconceptions about ideology, wealth, religion, race and sex.

Thanks to an interconnected global network of festivals worldwide, we will be able to screen our program internationally. We will create ideal spaces to screen, to learn about and to debate on animation. In addition, we will keep our eyes open for more avant-garde animation and we will keep up to date with any content on the world of animation, its technology, creators, events, festivals and much more.

Welcome to this wonderful expanded festival called ReAnima!
