ReAnima is the first independent animated film festival in Bergen, Norway's second largest city. We are born as a response to the prevailing need to give the city a space of interaction with and diffusion of animated art in all its aspects: traditional, conceptual, experimental and any other possibilities within the animated image.
Our first goal is to attract the greatest possible audience with the best quality of national and international animation, with visual art interventions in different parts of the city. We expect interaction from the public and we commit to arouse interest and curiosity for animated art in its numerous expressions.
Our long-term goal is to make ReAnima become a point of reference for global animation; a platform in which international creation is enriched with influences by all creators, from North to South and from East to West without walls of ideology, wealth, religion, race and sex.
Thanks to an interconnected global network of festivals around the world, we will be able to screen our program internationally around the world. Working in correlation with other art disciplines, we will promote a solid and liquid reflection on new expressions of animated art.
We will create ideal spaces to screen, to learn about and to debate on animation. In addition, we will keep our eyes open for new animation avant-gardes and we will keep up to date with any content on the world of animation, its technology, creators, events, festivals and much more.
¡Welcome to this wonderful expanded festival called ReAnima!
We are an enterprising and professional group working in cinema, culture and digital marketing. We have felt the need to have an alternative animated film festival in Bergen. Although Norway has great animators and great works of animation, it seems that animated art is not very well known in the country. There are few festivals exclusively dedicated to animation but in our opinion they lack an open spirit.
From the trenches of our knowledge we seek to change this situation and try to teach a wider audience to enjoy and understand what animated art is all about. And we try to achieve it by being open to novelties, differences and international influences.
