SYROS — The largest animation festival in Greece and one of the top 20 in the world, the 14th Animasyros 2021 International Animation Festival kicks off on September 22-26 at the island of Syros.

This year's main theme is 'Freedom', inspired by the bicentennial of the 1821 Greek Revolution, with screenings of animated short and feature films from around the world, with reference to personal and social freedom and revolution.

For the first time, the festival also features MEDAnima, a tribute to artists and animated films from the broader Mediterranean region, such as North Africa, Israel, France, Italy, Malta and selected Balkan countries.

The rich program of Animasyros will be presented in a hybrid, so-called 'phygital' format, including physical screenings on the island of Syros, as well as via a special digital screening platform.

The artistic programme includes seven competitions sections, with respective awards. These sections are: the International Competition Section, the TV & Commissioned Film Competition, the Student Competition Section, the Feature Film Competition running for the Audience Prize, the Prize for the Best Greek speaking film awarded since 2016 by the Greek Film Center, the K.ID.S competition section and the Animapride competition section with LGBTQI+ films.
