The Anima Saturdays Make Their Big Comeback in Flagey!

After a very hectic year, it's now the turn of the Anima Saturdays to make their comeback in Flagey, to the delight of film-loving families and animation enthusiasts!

The 2021-2022 season of the Anima Saturdays will be particularly rich, with no less than ten screenings between September and May, including an Anima Special that will exceptionally take place on Sunday 3 October! The season will open on Saturday 18 September with Mush-Mush et le petit monde de la forêt, a programme of three animated short films directed by Joeri Christiaen.

The Anima Team is looking forward to meeting you again in Flagey and is already working hard to organise a 2022 edition rich in emotions, but above all in reunions!


The official selection of the 2022 César has been announced! Six short films (Empty Places, Easter Eggs, Précieux, Rivages and Souvenir Souvenir) shown at Anima 2021, three of which won an award, will compete for the César for Best Animated Short Film.

In partnership with Anima, this residency programme offers French-speaking writers and directors a month’s residency in Meknes, Morocco, to develop the writing phase of their animation film project. Our ambassador, Suzie Kiehn, is on site currently developing a short film about her grandmother’s last day, a road-trip through the Ardennes with her daughter.
