The festival will run from 11 June to the 16th June.
The RabbitFest – International Animation Film Festival was founded in 2010 by the Cultural Association Skunk, committed to the promotion of international films that are not always distributed in Italy.
With RabbitFest, we chose to focus on animation, because we believe it is an underestimated genre, too often associated solely with a child audience. Above all, we are convinced that this genre includes masterpieces that deserve to be known by the general public.
RabbitFest takes place in the art city of Perugia, the Umbrian capital, a place rich in history and the cultural and economic hub of the region, which is experiencing a time of great cultural ferment thanks to its nominations as European Youth Capital 2017 and European Capital of Culture 2019.
This cultural dynamism is a symptom of the area’s desire to emerge and the attention it has always paid to foreign cultural influences. Not surprisingly, Perugia boasts the oldest university for foreigners in Italy.
