Animæntary is a project that works as a research, dissemination and exhibition platform for animated documentary films.
The growing popularity and importance of animated documentaries in recent years has increased interest in their study, and Animæntary was born with the intention of putting the focus on this type of work that moves between documentary film and animation .
Animæntary is a project promoted in 2014 by ANIMASIVO, in collaboration with DocsDF, CutOut Fest and Ambulante, and which is carried out thanks to the support of IMCINE.
In 2017, thanks to the support of THE INSTITUTE, Arts and Crafts for Strategic Communication, the Animated Documentary section (Animentary Prize) was launched within the 10th edition of the ANIMASIVO international short film competition. It is the first call in Latin America devoted exclusively to short animated documentaries.
