TRADITION OF ANIMATION AND HISTORY  
SHORT PRESENTATION OF THE HISTORY OF ANIMATION IN MAXIMUM 500 CHARACTERS (for example main awards and authors, important milestones, trends...)  The 1980s would prove to be a peak of Hungarian animation. Increasingly bold use of irony and allegory portrayed the Hungarian condition under Communist rule and during this period a number of Hungarian films received high accolades and prestigious awards including Ferenc Rofusz' 1981 Oscar for A Légy ("The Fly"). The decade would also mark a renaissance in technical experimentation with the exploration of many non-traditional graphic media such as plasticine, sand, coal, textiles, and computer animation. During this period the first feature-length films based on serials were created and proved to be quite popular. 
Today: 159 festival awards, 35 animation studios with permanent activities since the begining of the Hungarian Media Patronage Program  (2011), digital 2D and 3d and traditional animation as well.
