the festival


Dear Friends,
CINANIMA has been a beacon of education and artistic celebration for decades. Organized and produced by Nascente-Cooperativa De Acção Cultural Crl, our mission is clear: to promote and encourage the world of animation while enriching the cultural landscape of Espinho and Portugal.
As we continue to grow and evolve, we rely on the generosity of those who value us to help maintain the excellence of our Festival. Your donation contributes to:

  • Enriching Cultural Exchange: CINANIMA serves as a platform for international dialogue, allowing diverse voices and perspectives to be heard and celebrated through the art of animation. Your support helps us bring together creators, industry professionals, and audiences from around the world.
  • Empowering Emerging Artists: By supporting CINANIMA, you empower emerging animators to showcase their talent and build networks with industry professionals. Your donation could be the catalyst that launches the career of the next animation visionary.
  • Preserving Animation Heritage: As one of the oldest animation festivals, CINANIMA prides itself on preserving the heritage of animation while embracing innovation and experimentation. Your contribution helps us curate retrospectives, archive historical works, and ensure that the animation’s past drives the future.
  • Expanding Access and Education: We believe everyone should have the opportunity to experience the magic of animation. Your donation helps us keep ticket prices affordable, offer educational workshops, and bring CINANIMA to thousands of children across the country (and beyond).

Your support is invaluable in helping us continue our mission of celebrating animation excellence and promoting cultural enrichment.

Donate today and be part of the CINANIMA journey!

Thank you for your generosity and support.
