Fest Anča International Animation Festival - the only Slovak multimedia festival focused on animated film and digital games - is based in a former train station that has been transformed into a vibrant cultural center.

The festival aims to showcase contemporary, progressive animated films, and commemorate the cream of the genre. The long-term vision is to approximate well-known international festivals by uniquely showcasing this art form in Slovakia.

The festival features an international competition of animated short films and music videos, as well as non-competitive screening sections. Attendees can additionally enjoy presentations, exhibitions, workshops, film screenings for children, and numerous accompanying events.

The lively and inspiring summertime festival atmosphere is supported by a camp site, twilight screenings, live music concerts, and a tasty range of refreshments.
