Jump to:navigation, search

The Slovenian Animated Film Association (DSAF) was founded in 2011 with the aim of supporting the field of animated film in Slovenia through the joint efforts of the numerous authors and makers of animated film who are its members. Its doors are wide open for international participants who would like to collaborate in various activities that would ensure a better system and conditions for animated filmmaking in Slovenia and abroad in the long run.

DSAF actively participates in outlining the national film production policy that should take into consideration the development of animated film. This young platform encourages the exchange of experiences and cooperation among authors and filmmakers and organises events that bring the process of creation and production of animated films closer to audiences, namely, the CEE Animation Forum and CEE Animation Workshop.

The association strives to relaunch the Slovene national animated film festival in order to present a variety of Slovene animated film production to the general public as well as international experts.

International cooperation

DSAF regularly and very successfully participated in projects funded by the Creative Europe programme 2014–2020. In fact, their total amount of grants awarded by the EU as project leader put them in first place among Slovenian media organisations.

The two most international important endeavours of the association have thus become the CEE Animation Worksop and the CEE Animation Forum, with partners from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary. Usually held annually in the Czech Republic alongside the Anifim International Animated Film Festival, the CEE Animation Forum has become the leading regional pitching, financing and co-production event focusing on the animation industry and brings together industry experts from 20 countries in Central and Eastern Europe.

Developing the field

In an effort to encourage development among artists in the field, the DSAF also bestows annual awards to professionals and students. Winners are announced on its website and the winning animated films are screened in a special event.
