Amidst our sizzling summer, Animex Festival makes a lively return, now in its 23rd year, delivering the finest creative escapism from around the globe. The local market flourishes with a bounty of mesmerizing animated films, abundant comic artistry, and delightful caricature orchards. Yet, an underlying tremor of the most significant societal upheaval that Israel has seen in these fervent days hovers above us.
The opening program is a thrilling juggling act, balancing the topical and the festive (celebrating 100 years of Disney Studios and a new international competition), blending the young and the classic (Belgium’s comic book heroes), and intertwining fiery protest with refreshing illustration. From the creative kitchen comes a delectable feast, where artists serve up stories, statements, ideas, humor, originality, and profound experiences.
The Animex opening event eagerly awaits you, promising an evening of delightful indulgence. So, join us, and let the festivities begin! Good evening, Animex!
