I received this e-mail from MONSTRA Festival in Lisbon and want to encourage all of you to submit your films.

The Festival is very well run, treats animators and their films respectfully and is in beautiful Lisbon just when all of us in colder parts need to see some sun.

It seems very strange to be thinking about 2012 already but spring Fstival  deadlines are looming.  Anima Brussels is my home festival and I always enjoy it.  Anima Brussels treats films with respect, guests with lovely hospitality and the staff runs a totally enjoyable festival with screening rooms always fillled with local audiances.

I  recommend sending your film to this festival BUT beware the deadline is approaching.
Anima 2012, the International Animation Film Festival, will take place in Brussels,
Belgium, from February 17 till 26, 2012. This important animation appointment hosts an international competition with
many awards:

-Award for Best Feature
-Award for Best Short Film
-Award for Best Studentfilm
-Award for Best Advertising Film
-Award for Best Music Video
-Nomination for the Cartoon d’Or

This 31st edition will also present retrospectives, exhibitions, lectures, a series
of “pro” encounters (Futuranima) and workshops.
Every year the festival brings together more than 35.000 people: professionals,
journalists, students as well as a large local audience of children and adults.
