As the former location of the DEFA Animated Film Studio, Dresden has a long tradition as a center for animated film, reflected in the orientation of its film festival. Dresden is the only new East-German festival actually founded before the tumbling down of the Wall. Filmfest Dresden is Europe's short film festival with the best funded awards.
It is one of the most important short film events of the year and the leader in the specialized area of animation. Growing numbers of visitors from all branches of the industry and a high degree of audience popularity evidence Dresden's significance for the national short film scene.
