The ninth edition of Anim’est starts today in Bucharest. Between October 3 and 12, the popular international animation film festival will screen some of the latest animations at Elvira Popescu, Studio movie theaters and at Re: Animation Hub.

Kids have a dedicated program in the festival: Minimest, a series of screenings, interactive activities and workshops.

From Friday to Sunday, during the two weekends (October 3-5 and 10-12), well-known as well as fresh animations for children will be screened at Elvira Popescu and Studio movie theatres.
