This Channel is designed to showcase videos selected for (1) having a simple but powerful story, (2) being highly creative, and/or (3) making think, during and after.
Most of these films (English spoken or subtitled) have a minimal use of words or no words at all.
They absolutely escape the five deadly sins of filmmaker: being boring, being obvious, being predictable, being unintelligible and being too fond of its own navel.

FOUR YEARS after its creation ANIMA proudly displays videos coming from:
Argentine (2), Belgium (2), Brazil (1), Cambodia (1), Canada (1), Czech Republic (1), Denmark (1), Estonia (1), France (6), Germany (3), Greece (2), Hong Kong [S.A.R. of P.R.C.] (1), Israel (2), Italy (5), Japan (1), The Netherlands (1), Nigeria (1), Norway (1), Poland (1), Portugal (2), Russian Federation (1), South Africa (2), Spain (3), Sweden (1), Turkey (2), UK (14), and USA (34).

ANIMA: Over 4,300 films watched. 94 films added to date - which means we are one of the most demanding channels on Vimeo.
Two new videos will be added every month!
