Animation Screenings Film Festival Striped Tale is a film festival & screenplay contest dedicated to animation.

We hold the festival live in popular venues (cinemas, conference halls, parks, etc.) to get closer to an audience.

During the event, each film receives the audience feedback and evaluation by 6 criteria: script, directing, acting, camerawork, music, and impressiveness. Filmmakers receive detailed results personally after the event. Based on those results the best film receives the Audience Award.

Screenplay contest:
We pitch a short screenplay description (logline) on the event page to filmmakers and producers attending the festival. In case of their interest, we contact the screenplay author.
The author can send an additional written or video description for pitching.
A jury selects the Best Screenplay winner and other category screenplay winners.
The Screenplay contest winners receive certificates.

A professional jury panel that includes award-winning filmmakers, producers, as well as representatives of distributors, buyers, and online streaming services, also reviews selected films and gives their awards.

So, what can you expect when you submit your film to our film festival:
🟢 Live screenings of your film in front of a severe and multinational audience
🟢 Audience feedback with the evaluations of your film. This feedback is very important for further film distribution as well.
🟢 Promotion of your film on our social media and among our customers and site visitors
🟢 Pitching screenplays in front of filmmakers and producers
🟢 Professional jury awards.
🟢 Official Certificates and unique festival laurels for your film.
🟢 The Festival Winner receives the Trophy
🟢 Networking opportunities
🟢 Your film will be observed by buyers and channel representatives collaborating with our project and our festival.
🟢 You can receive further distribution opportunities from our team based on your film screening results

And most of the fun, pleasure, honor, and big hug emotions!

  • A delightful charming festival. Communication was excellent and friendly but professionally. I thoroughly enjoyed watching all the short listed animation films - presenting some great imaginative ideas in various different animation styles. It was hard to choose the best one, as each film had its own unique merits. Thank you for choosing my script as a winner for best short screenplay. This is just the second edition of the festival and I wish it all the best as it grows in the future. Highly recommended.
