FAF2021: A New hope

As many festivals around the moved online or canceled altogether in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, Fredrikstad Animation Festival stayed strong through a troubled last year and are ready to take on the task for a new edition in 2021, which takes place from 21 to 24 of October.

We are optimistic about things turning to the better soon, but will of course continue to monitor the situation closely and make adjustments to our planning as they become necessary.

One thing, however, is certain:

True to tradition, FAF 2021 will present the best and latest within Nordic-Baltic and international animation, and provide plenty of exciting experiences for all lovers of animation this October – be it live and in person as usual or through our digital plattform.

Here are some important festival dates to mark in your calendar:
