International festival of animation arts.


The International Festival of Animation Arts "Multivision" is an annual event in St.Petersburg, Russia, held in November. The festival includes competition in animation shorts (duration 1 - 30 min) and video installations evaluated by a professional jury.

The festival program explores the latest developments in international animation, its influence on other artistic practices, synthesis of animation art with other visual and performance arts.

Multivision’s 15th edition will be held on October 28 - November 20, 2017.

Multivision Festival aims to create an innovative dialogue with its audience, to integrate animation art in the environment of the modern megapolis. Multivision is known by its outdoor summer projects: the public screening of the special competition programs at the erected parts of drawbridges on the Neva River in the center of St.Petersburg, from 2007. The festival program is projected onto the 400 square meters giant screen attached to the bridge surface. A street cinema competition is a part of the main festival, it is held in summer, on obvious weather reasons, in the framework of Multivision’s public art project Multi-Bridge (August, exact date TBC). This open air screening of the competition program is admission free and gathers more than 30 000 spectators. It is an excellent chance for shorts filmmakers to show their work to such a wide audience. Street cinema competition is a part of the main competition and festival's entry forms work for both.

The festival features a special competition of animated video installations, submissions under "Animated video installations" category. Works selected in this category take part in the festival exhibition at Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in St.Petersburg, Russia.
