17 higher education institutions host CINANIMA in Universities

In 17 higher education institutions in Portugal throughout the month of October, CINANIMA will screen 32 short animated films from the world’s top auteurs. This effort, which comes before the 47th edition of CINANIMA, which runs from November 13 to 19, is a fantastic opportunity for cultural transmission.

This year, academic communities across the nation and the general public will be able to witness two short film programmes from two significant European art schools: KASK in Ghent, Belgium, and HKU in Utrecht, the Netherlands, in addition to the screening of the 2022 CINANIMA Prize-winners.

By 2023, this programme, which started with six universities in 2014, will have expanded to 17 institutions of higher learning. You can view 32 short films from the best European and international animation cinema in more than 50 sessions at auditoriums and other cultural venues throughout Portugal.

The autumn animation movie marathon kicks first at the University of the Algarve (Faro), then moves on to UTAD in Vila Real, the University of Porto, the Guimares Centre at UM, the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança, the University of Madeira in Funchal, and the Lusófona University in Lisbon. Following this are the Polytechnic Institute of Guarda, the Braga Centre of the University of Minho, the Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre, the University of the Azores in Ponta Delgada, the University of Beira Interior in Covilh, the Universities of Coimbra and Aveiro, IPCA in Barcelos, ESAD in Matosinhos, and ESMAD in Vila do Conde, where the journey comes to an end.
