  • CINE ANIMAL Bogotá is a professional, fun and warm festival with a real cause, a very rare combination that all filmmakers are always on the look out for!

    A great festival does not need to be overpriced or flamboyant. CINE ANIMAL is a festival I recommend filmmakers to check out, and especially so if your films are aligned and can help with their cause!
