Sisterhood of Young Animation Auteurs – SYAA is a free and extensive program run by the Animest Association for women who want to direct or write their own short film project, but have not found the necessary support from the industry around them. During the seven-day residency, the 10 participants will receive professional advice from mentors regarding the script, the directorial concept, the artistic vision and the actual production of the short film.

SYAA’s main goal is to increase the number of female animation filmmakers by offering women active in the film industry a comprehensive study program designed to encourage and support them to develop their knowledge of animation film production, distribution and direction.

The program is aimed at artists from Romania and the Republic of Moldova, it is free, and will take place physically in Bucharest.

Registration can be done until June 13, 2022, 11:59 p.m. Details here
