Event name: Fest Anča
Month taking place: June
The international festival of animated films Fest Anča was held for the first time in 2008 and since then it is an inseparable part of the Žilina Summer of Culture. The places of holding the event are traditionally the Žilina-Záriečie Station, the Ster Century Cinemas, the New Synagogue, the Museum of Art Žilina and the Artforum Library.
During the festival visitors can watch the best contemporary animated films from all over the world. The majority of the films have their premiere in Slovakia here and in the scope of Slovakia they can only be seen at this event. A visitor to the festival will get to know the spirit of animated film and can take part in different lectures, workshops, exhibitions and concerts.
Because it is a multi-day festival in an open-air environment, visitors can also make use of the tent city which is located immediately next to the Záriečie Station. Tickets can be purchased either for one screening or for a whole day or for the entire festival.
