Festival website

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. The Festival is organized by a non-profit association, it is approved by ASIFA – Association International du Film d’Animation.
