This year has been very hard for everybody; we believe that, in this critical moment, the most important ability we need to practice and improve is imagination. Thanks to imagination we can reinvent how we want to live. Independent animation is like a visual library of emotions and feelings; it helps us to cultivate our imagination, to broaden our perspective on life and culture. For this reason, at ReAnima we want to use animation as a tool to transform ReAlity. 

We want to thank all of you, supporters and partners of ReAnima, because you made this year’s online edition possible. We hope all of you can enjoy as much as we did preparing this edition with all our heart. This year we named the programs as the mountains that surround Bergen: Ulriken, Løvstakken, Damsgårdsfjellet, Lyderhorn, Sandviksfjellet, Blåmanen and Fløyfjellet. We decided to do this because mountains are symbols of natural strength and this is what we want to transmit to all of you. We need to find our natural strength to face these very strange times.

We hope to meet all of you next year in Bergen. In the meantime, here you can watch our online edition.
