During the festival week, filmmakers and audiences together immerse themselves in the world of animation. Moreover, whoever wins the International Competition in Stuttgart automatically qualifies for the Oscars.
- International Competition (short films)
- Student Competition (short films)
- Tricks for Kids (short films)
- Trickstar Nature (short films)
- AniMovie (feature films – for adults and kids)
We also show films that are not in competition!
The SPECIAL PROGRAMME brings even more animation to the screen: premieres, exceptional feature films, series specials or the complete works of individual filmmakers.
In the Special Focus Ireland we take a look at the young, progressive animation scene of the Emerald Isle and in the German Animation section we focus on the domestic animation industry.
Meeting point for the industry:
The world of animated film comes together in Stuttgart and celebrates the STUTTGART ANIMATED WEEK together with the APD and the FMX. To see, discuss, network, learn, doubt, marvel. With exclusive insights, talks and panels, workshops and masterclasses, school and studio presentations.
Last but not least: What would a festival be without events? The ITFS has much to offer outside the cinema too – including parties, an opening gala, and award ceremonies.
