Anima means “soul”, Tiba means “a lot of”. Thus, our ANIMATIBA event presents itself
as a space-time of great energy, of movement, of development. These souls came from lovers of the moving image, amateurs, researchers and profissional filmmakers that shows or see films and discuss at ANIMATIBA. The word ANIMATIBA also reveals its links with Curitiba, the "ecological city" of Brazil.

ANIMATIBA is a moment for film appreciation, as well as the valorization of those who work hard, the animators, who embark on a project to build an animated work. It is not a matter of connecting a camera and shooting scenes, but generating each frame, creating and building all the images of each layer of that frame. The ANIMATIBA trophy is more than an object of victory in a competition, it aims to be a sign of encouragement to the artistic and technical development for students, professionals and companies.

The Animatiba trophy is called ANIMATIBOSCÓPIO because it is an object inspired in the Charles-Émile Reynaud´s praxinoscope. To see go to www.animatiba.com.br/trofeu
