Slovak Animation Today

The years 2015 and 2016 in Slovak animated film have been characterized primarily by long-term preparation of new titles, domestic success for student films, an absence of short films in distribution, and the first Slovak feature-length animated film since 1980. The year 2015 can be seen as a year of waiting; its greatest achievement may be the ongoing support for new shorts and series by the Audiovisual Fund commission and the willingness of young filmmakers to stick to making short artistic films without the need to embark on commercially driven projects. The community of foreign professionals is currently following the particularly promising projects Heart of Tower, Websters and Tots, among others. With regards to both short artistic films and television and feature-length production we have certainly set off towards further positive development.
