The Animattikon Project is an event of the European Capital of Culture PAFOS2017 celebrating the art of animated film.
Its principal goal is to propose a series of animation workshops to the wide public. Animators from several countries will gather at the town of Paphos and organize, for one week, their workshops, each one concentrated on a different aspect of the art of animated images.
At the same time conferences, lectures and exhibitions are organized in the cinema Attikon, as well as other spots aroung the city, like the Kimonos Art Center, the cultural center Technopolis20 and the café Ananas 8bit.
This way, the Animattikon Project aims at introducing the people of Paphos (and of Cyprus in general) to the world of animation.
The Animattikon Project also aims at becoming a venue for independent animators to showcase their work. The event ends with a three day set of projections at the Attikon, a historical cinema theater of Paphos. During these three days, the films produced in the workshops will be presented, along with an official selection of films by independent animators from all over the world.
