The seventh Fantoche will be held in the town of Baden from September 8-13, 2009. The international show of animation film has become one of the world's most prominent animation festivals and is the only cultural event in Switzerland that is devoted exclusively to the full array of animation techniques, content and media.
Since making its debut back in 1995, Fantoche has shown hundreds of short and long films from right around the world every two years. It offers the very best in entertainment for young and old alike, makes new discoveries for all animated film buffs and serves as a meeting place for animation specialists in Switzerland and abroad.
With a programme containing over 100 events, along with screenings of 300 short films and feature films from all over the world, the last edition of Fantoche in 2007 proved to be a great celebration of animated filmmaking, attracting 25,000 fans of the genre to Baden.
The seventh edition of Fantoche in September 2009 will build on this achievement: In light of the growing success of the festival and of the tremendous diversity and dynamism of animated filmmaking, Fantoche has decided to increase the tempo and let Baden and Switzerland immerse themselves in the flood of new animated pictures every year.
We look forward to seeing you there again!
