Futuranima LIVE - Meetings, Q&A's and round tables on Zoom

Every year, the Anima festival offers a fine showcase for one of the flagships of Belgian know-how, animation. In 2021, we are celebrating its 40th edition, which is a bit special. Futuranima, the professional section of the event, maintains its willingness to promote exchange approaches, particularly around current themes, new initiatives, the work of studios and filmmakers, and all this through presentations, question and answer sessions, master classes and round tables. All this, virtually of course. 

For the full programme of the festival, please visit the Anima website.
