Pictoplasma Berlin 2025 – Characters In Motion

Pictoplasma Berlin 2025 is calling for animation submissions for the “Characters In Motion” international screenings.

High-grade Characters in animation, narration, music visuals, experimental work or motion graphics, from any part of the world, are wanted.

All animated short films (experimental, narrative, non-narrative, commissioned, or student films) will be considered for the 21st Pictoplasma festival selection, scheduled to take place in Berlin in May 2025.

The Pictoplasma Festival showcases latest trends in character design and art, cutting edge screenings bring the latest animation eye-candy to the big screen, and numerous exhibitions throughout the city invite all to experience original works and outstanding character craftsmanship.

The Characters in Motion screenings offer an overview of international animations, short films, motion graphics, and experimental work, focusing on stylish and fresh character-driven visuals and narratives.

Pictoplasma Berlin 2025 is scheduled for 7th-11th May 2025.

Pictoplasma is the world’s leading platform for contemporary character design and art. The project pushes forward interdisciplinary discussion, development and promotion of a new breed of visual vocabulary — from illustration to animation, game to interactive design, urban to graphic arts.

Since its inception in 2004, each spring Pictoplasma transforms Berlin into the international meeting point for a diverse scene of artists and creatives, trailblazing the face of tomorrow’s visual culture.
