The Festival Biennial of Animation Bratislava (BAB) has earned a special place on the map of international festivals due to its focusing exclusively on animation intended for children.
In 1991, it achieved the status of international festival and has cooperated with international organization of UNICEF since its very beginning.
The Festival’s mission is to foster artistic confrontation in the field of animation intended for children, create conditions for the evaluation thereof and hence support the complex development of this unique kind of art.
The international competition of animated films for children is unique, since it reflects the non-commercial audio-visual culture as well as animated films from all over the world, just like the one which has been presented by the BIB for half a century of universal book illustrations for children.
An international jury decides about the competition winners and awards prestigious prizes. The Festival also incorporates screenings of animated films from the whole world, specialized seminars, discussions, presentations of important personalities, competitions as well as animated film workshops. Important features of the Festival are numerous exhibitions...
… but above all, it is about fairy tales, fairy tales and once again FAIRY TALES!
