Accompanying this year’s festival we are delighted once again to present our 5th Chester Animation Festival.

We will be showing the best in international animations following a call for submissions to the Festival. For this year’s festival, we have had 1093 entries submitted from 83 countries! We have narrowed this down to the best 10 films. Each night our audience will vote, and on the final night – Wednesday 7 March – we will decide who will win the audience prize for 2018.
