The 29th Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film will take place from May 3 to 8, 2022.
It is planned as a hybrid version, onsite events in cinemas and other locations will be supplemented by online offers. On the one hand, it will once again be possible to exchange ideas in person and to experience animated feature and short films together in the competitions and in the extensive supporting programme, workshops, lectures, presentations, games and exhibitions and much more live in Stuttgart. The Schlossplatz will once again become the central meeting point where the public can come together to enjoy the open-air programme free of charge.
On the other hand, it has become apparent this year and last year that the online offer has enabled the ITFS programme to be seen by a worldwide audience that does not come to Stuttgart for various reasons. Thus, the 29th ITFS will bring together the advantages of onsite and online events.
The ITFS 2022 will be graphically represented by the trailer “The principles of animation / Black is Back” by François Chalet. The Swiss artist teaches storytelling and expanded animation at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts and works as a visual artist in the fields of illustration, animation, installation and performance as well as on multiplatform projects.
