MONSTRA Festival


Submit your animated film now for the next edition of MONSTRA | Lisbon Animation Festival from March 20 to 30, 2025!

In 2024, with around 3,000 films submitted, almost 400 were selected and then shown to more than 47,000 spectators. Come and celebrate with us a quarter of a century of animation on the streets of Lisbon with various retrospectives, world and Portuguese premieres, and a special focus on a guest country: Austria!
