Animæntary is a project that works as a research, dissemination and exhibition platform for animated documentary films.
The growing boom and importance that animated documentaries have acquired in recent years has increased interest in their study, and Animæntary was born with the intention of focusing 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 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 (Animæntary Award) was launched within the 10th edition of the ANIMASIVO international short film competition. It is the first call in Latin America dedicated exclusively to animated short documentaries.
