Animac Camina

A tour to bring Animac to everyone


The Festival only lasts for a few days, but once it closes the doors, there is a small part, the most representative, which goes on a tour looking for public who is interested in the project. This is where Animac Walks comes into play. Of all the films scheduled, the same artistic direction chooses a selection of films in the form of different programs, about an hour each, designed for different audiences and territories. These programs are designed to spread the art of animation in other festivals, theater programs and other cultural events. This year, Animac Walks includes sessions aimed at different audiences: on the one hand, Little Animac Walks, aimed at the youngest public and International Animac Walks with the best worldwide animation proposals that have been presented during Animac.

Animac Walks takes place annually at the end of the Festival. This is the reason why the films are so recent and Animac can provide continuity for schools/institutions.


ANIMAC’s objective has always been to bring to Lleida the riskiest and most committed animation of the moment, and also the creation of partnerships and analogies with other artistic expressions.

In the field of creation and entertainment, technology allows us to mix, increasingly more and better, different languages and techniques. Hybrida, in Latin, refers to the bastard, to the mixture of species. If we were to move the analogy to the current audiovisual world, where animation has infiltrated all genres, we would say that its gene dominates.

From film to videogames, the frame-by-frame work is gaining more prominence. This is why this year’s topic has been devoted to hybridization.

After every edition of the Festival, we offer a good selection of movies in our program. We want to present the most representative works of Animac in Catalonia and the rest of the state. The exhibitions take place in art centres, exhibitions, festivals and cultural centres of reference.

This year, the artistic direction of the Festival has selected 8 works for the program “Animac Walks. Hybrid” (adults) and a total of 6 for its children’s version “Little Animac Walks”, which last 69 and 62 minutes, respectively.

Animac Walks opens its doors to present a selection of the most recent and representative works that have been the essence of such an intense and pluralistic experience. We hope this new edition to be very successful so that many people can enjoy this year’s works!


The program for Animac Camina. Future is Female! consists of 9 works from different authors:

- Animac Camina. Future is Female! (65 minutes)

The program will be accompanied by photographs and video excerpts for its promotion and dissemination.
Most of the films have no dialogues, but in the case of those which are in other languages, the Festival offers Catalan or Spanish subtitles.

The program Animac Camina. Future is Female! will be available until 31st May 2017.
