SEAFF 2018 is the film festival in Stockholm that focuses on animated short and experimental film.

Are you an artist, animator or experimental filmmaker, or aspiring to be? Then your work is relevant to us!

Are you a creative person who uses moving pictures as your artistic expression to tell a story? We would love to see it!

We accept narrative and none narrative film, video art, computer animation (2D & 3D), music videos, traditional animation and stop-motion animation on any topic, from every country around the world.

– Attention will be given to artistic originality and creativity.

– We welcome ideas with experimental ambitions.

– Our selection is based solely on aesthetic values.

The past two editions of SEAFF have been held at Zita and Rio, two of Stockholms oldest and finest cinemas. SEAFF enriches and provides Stockholm and Scandinavia with a piece of the great diversity of ambitious and qualitative films made internationally.

The festival has been given attention in both Swedish and international press and has been supported by the cultural department of Stockholm City and by the Art Grant Committee in Sweden.

The purpose and goal with SEAFF is to draw attention to filmmakers who through their versatility, artistic originality and creativity leave an unique impression on the art of film!

SEAFF 2017 | JURY WINNERS

Director Amanda Bonaiuto is a Jury Winner in Stockholm Experimental and Animation Film Festival 2017! Batfish Soup is awarded with the price Best Animated Film!

Amanda Bonaiuto’s work contains strong autobiographical elements. Travels and memories, going back as far as childhood, have been an important source of inspiration for her film Batfish Soup. Bonaiuto’s tell the story of a dysfunctional family in a rhythmically floating way. Her poetic animations display an exquisite sense of composition; as in the case of calligraphy the empty space is as important as in the colored ones.

Director Ricard Carbonell is a Jury Winner in Stockholm Experimental and Animation Film Festival 2017! Patarei Prison is awarded with the price Best Experimental Film!

Ricard Carbonell’s works are characterized by quiet, almost meditative state. His film Patarei Prison is tied both to the strong narrative tradition and to the considerably conceptual tradition of the experimental film medium.
