The International Festival of Children's and Youth Animated Film grew out of the International Multimost Project, launched in 2016.
The main goals of the festival are popularization of the author's animated film; popularization of animation as a modern form of children's and youth creativity that contributes to the development of creative thinking through the application of new technologies; establishing international cooperation in the field of animation; establishing intercultural dialogue and encouraging young people to learn foreign languages, get to know other traditions and cultures;
while affirmatively presenting their tradition and culture.
To achieve the goals within the festival, we organize a rich accompanying program and the festival activities are divided into 3 groups: competitive activities, educational activities, and professional and scientific activities.
The entire competition program will be shown in the Great Cinema Hall of the Cultural Center of Novi Sad, as well as in the cinemas of 10 cities in Serbia that participate in the Bridges of Serbia festival program.
