17-26 February 2023

42nd edition


The Brussels International Animation Film Festival

17 - 26 FEBRUARY 2023


Anima is coming to an end in Flagey after 10 crazy days and is finally back to full cinemas, with more than 40 sold-out screenings, privileged moments of sharing with the film teams and many successful festive events such as the new Drink and Draw, the Fiesta Española, the Queer Night or the Animated Night. The attendance figures seem to be at least as good as in 2020, which was a record year, with this year's attendance of almost 30,000 spectators in Flagey alone! Anima will also be able to count on a new virtual audience from 27 February for another month with an online film offer available throughout Belgium on the Sooner streaming platform. In short, a successful, highly convivial edition with a renewed audience.

Enjoy Anima again on Sooner

Until March 28, find on Sooner the Anima Festival team's favourites, with jewels from our Best of Shorts selections, such as the fabulous The Flying Sailor, nominated for an Oscar, from the Queer Night with the touching Christopher at Sea, or from the Animated Night with the very funny Mon Tigre! Children are not forgotten, of course, with a fine selection that includes the Anima 2023 Audience Award and Jury Award, the sublime Drôles d'oiseaux.

Sooner, the Belgian platform for film lovers, also offers a beautiful permanent collection of animated features that have marked previous editions of the Anima festival. Enjoy a free month with the code ANIMA!
