Impressions ITFS 2016

In the spring of 2016, Stuttgart will once more become the centre of the world with regards to animated film for six days and nights. The Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS) is one of the most outstanding events for animated film worldwide. The Festival takes into its scope the whole spectrum of current productions in the animated film sector, including the intersections between games, architecture, art, design and comedy. With Game Zone, the ITFS takes an especially close look at transmedia and the convergence of animation and computer games.

The Festival offers directors as well as production and distribution companies a platform to present their films to an interested and large audience as well as countless members of the industry.
