3 september 2020

Dear friends! Due to the current threat of spread of the coronavirus infection, this year we are forced to cancel the XXVIIth International Animated Film Festival KROK. For the first time in the history of the festival, which spans thirty years, we make this decision with great regret. During all these years KROK has been staying strong through various economic and political cataclysms, always remaining the home of animation directors from more than 50 countries, always supporting the ideals of humanism, peace and friendship between nations with the means of animation. The festival has always provided ample opportunities for a comprehensive exchange of experience between animators from different countries, as well as exploration of national features and world traditions in animation, which has, sadly, become impossible in the current tense epidemiological situation.

We express our deepest hope that the situation will allow us to hold the festival in the usual format and scale in 2021. The results of Selection 2020 remain valid. Follow information updates on our Facebook pages. With respect, the Direction and the Organizing Committee of IAFF KROK.
