About

This Festival was founded in 2015

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

Our Second Edition will take place June 18th 2017 at Zita in Stockholm.
Zita is the oldest Cinema in Stockholm, founded 1913.

Stockholm Experimental and Animation Film Festival, SEAFF, will present highly recognized artists and directors from the international scene as well as new and emerging independent artists and storytellers.

If you define yourself as an artist, animator and experimental filmmaker, your work is relevant to us. Are you a creative person who uses moving pictures as your artistic expression or to tell a story? We would love to see it!

We accept narrative and none narrative film, video art, computer animation (2D & 3D), 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 common denominator for all foreign films in the program at the festival in 2016 was that they had never previously been exhibited or screened in Sweden. It's not a requirement for the applicant to never have shown films in Sweden before. It is a hint of the importance of a festival like this in Stockholm.

SEAFF enriches and provides Stockholm and Scandinavia with a piece of the great diversity of ambitious and qualitative films made internationally. SEAFF will contribute to the spread these films. We have an audience who share an interest in this medium, who wants to take part of this collective storytelling. The purpose and goal with SEAFF is to draw attention to filmmakers who through their versatility, artistic originality and creativity leave a unique impression on the art of film.
