The Festival of Animated Film for Children and Youth of Serbia was founded in 2013 with the aim of promoting the national production of animated film made by young authors, up to 18 years old. It is based upon the concept of competition programme divided into 2 categories: Children - under 15 years of age and Youth - 15 to 18 years old, but it is also followed by numerous following programmes including exhibitions, masterclass workshops, film retrospectives of other similar festivals. Even though it was originally created as a creative platform for popularization and development of the national animated film production, in 2017 the festival grew into an international cultural event by enriching it's competition programme with a European selection of animated films for children and youth.

As of 2018, the festival was upgraded with one more competition category: 3rd category for films aimed at children and youth but made by professionals, students and others alike.

The Festival takes place in Jagodina every September with the support of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Serbia and the City of Jagodina.

The festival is aimed at promoting the art of animation from European countries and serves as a place of gathering for young people willing to exchange and build new creative ideas.

8th Animator fest will take place in Jagodina, Serbia, 16th to 20th September 2020.
