21 February - 01 March 2020



The Festival is an event itself, with a continuous stream of screenings, guests, exhibitions, workshops and conferences. Here's a selection of a few out-of-the-ordinary events: the screening of a complete series, some "green " films accompanied by an educational tool, a meeting with a contemporary artist, a drawing battle and a programme of funny films made by women.

Battle dessinée du Journal Spirou !

    If you're a fan of live drawing, come along to the friendly pencil fight between pairs of graphic designers from Spirou magazine. A cross between a graphic wrestling match and a contemporary art happening, the Spirou Drawing Battle is sure to set Anima alight!

    Women in Laugh

    • Een griekse tragedie
    • Pinguin
    • Chroniques du 9e art : La Pureté de l'enfance
    • Et ta prostate, ça va?

    Sometimes fierce, sometimes subtle, these women touch on all the aspects of humour and dare to talk about everything, from the prostate to nuns or their own wild fantasies. Nothing escapes their spirited visual and verbal liveliness. 

    The very best of feminine humour paying tribute to the filmmaker Nicole Van Goethem who died 20 years ago and who won the Oscar® for Best Short Film (Animated) with Een Griekse Tragedie
