This year the festival will demonstrate more than 200 animated films. According to the organizers opinion, Multividenie is the only place, where one can see an independent animation. “One can judge about the festival and the development of cartoons not only in this country but also abroad. The best will be presented on this festival, the motions which are worth watching. Every year new techniques and approaches appear. There is also a special kind of animation – an experimental one. Two motions out of ten are some kind of breakthrough.” – stated the director of animated motion Dmitry Visotsky.

Animation is an art, so it can dwell upon all the topics, including the burning issues. As there are horror films on the big screens, there are also animated films about burdensome life situations.” In the programme there is a motion named Orgasm, but nothing indecent can be found there, except for its title. One can also watch a motion about the sexual life disrupted by the Internet. About the girl, who got in coma – an incredibly beautiful film.” – explained Svetlana Petrova, organizer of the festival.
