The festival dedicated to animated film

Animest is the only festival in Romania dedicated to animated film. Every year it welcomes to Bucharest international filmmakers, producers and journalists.


The Animest International Animation Film Festival, established in 2006, has become one of Bucharest’s most loved film festivals and a recognized event on the international animation scene. The festival’s mission is to reinvigorate and support local animation filmmakers showcase their work in  international film festivals and events.

The creators of Animest wanted to make it easier for their participants to interact with the festival: get more info, buy tickets and many more through a mobile app.

Our Support

For Animest, we built native mobile apps for iOS and Android. Through Animest, festival participants can buy tickets and go to the events, thanks to an integration with the Eventbook platform.

Among key features, we show the schedule of the festival and create a personalized program with users’ favorite events, allow users to keep tickets on their phone after the purchase. The app provides quick access to information about the festival and the ability to vote for their favorite performance. One cool feature, appreciated by participants, is the interactive augmented reality (AR) experience that allows users to view a film trailer just by pointing their camera at an Animest poster.

Proposed Solution

We c​created very easy to use native apps for iOS and Android platforms.

Through the apps, participants can buy tickets, see the schedule. A very appreciated feature is the ability to make a personalized program with events from festivals. Users have the possibility to make reservations for specific events and to buy different types of tickets. Animest integrates an Immersive Experience by taking advantage of the AR SDKs in both iOS (ARKit framework) and Android (AR Core): point the camera at an Animest poster and enjoy the experience!

We approached the project in a cost efficient infrastructure – the integration with the Eventbook platform helped us use as little resources as possible.
