Prime the Animation! is an international animation festival of emerging students and professionals which generates a space for encounter and interchange, aiming at sharing their most recent works and new projects, along with activities, talks and exhibitions. A novel aspect of the festival is that the ones in charge of its direction and organization are enthusiastic students, professors and professionals about animation. Moreover, in order to celebrate the International Animation Day, the entrance to screenings, exhibitions and talks will be free of charge.
Since its beginnings in 2013, shortfilms elaborated by students from all over the world have participated: Spain, Denmark, Chile, Japan, United Kingdom, India, Germany, Mexico, Estonia and Canada; and, furthermore, valuable professionals as renowned as Joanna Quinn, Osbert Parker, Pablo Llorens, PriitPärn, Alberto Vazquez or Silly Walks Studio among others have taken part in this festival, enabling students to revise their projects and portfolios together with these great animation professionals.
Prime the Animation! is possible thanks to the support of Master en Animación UPV, UPV’s Área de Actividades culturales and Filmoteca- Culturarts, as well as other contributors who join the festival every edition.
