Children’s Animated Film Academy

The Children’s Animated Film Academy of the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film is for all children and young people who want to get really involved with animated film: On three days of the festival week 2022, children and young people produced a stop-motion film in five modules that build on each other, with the support of professionals from the various sectors of animated film production (character design, set construction, filming, sound design, visual effects). You can see the result film of the Kinder-Trickfilmakademie 2022 here!
