Eastpackers is looking for creative volunteers who like to organize a festival at an unique place in the heart of the Balkan!
Anibar is an organization founded by a group of young artists who have demonstrated their enthusiasm and vision to promote culture during the last ten editions of the Anibar International Animation Festival while also exhibiting the capacity to organize large scale events. Anibar has invested in capacity building of youth and children through training, workshops, debates, and other activities that will allow all Balkan artists to increase their visibility in international markets.
Anibar has developed its strategic plan for the next several years and has adopted 3 areas of emphasis which include civic education, cultural development and film production. Its current mission within this strategy is to break civic apathy through cultural activism. The balance between the activities of each program allows Anibar to be active throughout the year, continuously delivering the mission of the organization.
Each summer we organize Anibar International Animation Festival where we organize film screenings, masterclasses, presentations, workshops, music concerts, panel discussions etc. Each year we treat different social or political issues as a theme of the festival and we invite a number of European and American animators, directors and filmmakers. The 11th edition will take place on 13-21 July 2020.
In January 2017, Anibar has been awarded the lease from Municipality of for the next 15 years, which will allow Anibar to revitalize, restore, and functionalize the Cinema Jusuf Gervalla through its development strategy, and organizing film screenings, music concerts, open discussions, presentations and other events.
