About the festival

The chiyoko Festival was held for the first time in Zurich in 2015. It was organized by the Jugendfilmförderverein jugend+film. Children and young people from all countries can submit animated films and take part in the competition. Films can now be submitted!


After the pre-jury has reviewed all submitted films, it decides which films will be nominated. These will then be shown at the festival and judged by a jury. The best three films in each category will be awarded. The jury is cross-generational and consists of a child, a teenager, an animator and another expert.
