We are members of the international professional organisation, ASIFA, where we represent our country, as Asifa Hungary.
ASIFA (Association Internationale du Film d’Animation) was founded in 1960 in Annecy, France as an association of individual animation artists. Today ASIFA can be described as an international network of numerous local ASIFA Chapters, which have developed their own local identities and special activities.
We continuously apply for national and international funds to find financial resources for our initiatives. Animated Spirits was founded and organized by Zita Mara Vadasz, former director of the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York and curated by Anna Ida Orosz, lecturer at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in Budapest, Hungary; both well-known figures in the European animation community. Every year the program includes both professional and student works, panel discussions with filmmakers, academics, and other industry figures and networking events. The 4th edition of the festival is co-financed by the Governments of Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund.
