The international recognition once again confirmed!

The World Festival of animated film “Animafest Zagreb” has named GOBELINS best animation school 2019 by discerning the "2019 Best animation school Award"!


We are very proud of this reward which is awarded by one of the oldest and most prestigious animation festivals in the world.

The 29th edition will take place from the 3rd to the 8th of June 2019.

The jury has been impressed by the richness of the GOBELINS’ films production this year. Fourteen Graduation films that is to say the equivalent of one full-length film; a production totally renewed, in constant search of experimentation and innovation.

The jury has also underlined our contribution to the creation and animation industry given the artistical and technical narration quality.

This is a consecration for our animation program which has recently opened a master of Arts in animation, offering a particularly enriching cultural dimension.


For this occasion, the school will accompany and support the movie teams in competition in the “Student film” category: “Hors de l’eau” and “The Ostrich Politic”.


Two beautiful selections for commited 2 films about exclusion and freedom of speech.

Two films with technical prowesses: one realized with a camera that enables to film in a stop-motion animation set, the other in 3D.

Two films with an innovative and original narration: a narration realized thanks to a camera settled in the main character and a voice-over who recites a poem.
