Fantoche is an animation film festival with international participation and takes place each year in the city of Baden, Switzerland.
The first Fantoche took place in 1995 with the goal to enrich the Swiss cultural life with an animation film festival of international reach. Today, Fantoche has become indeed an inter branch meeting point for visual media. All kinds of different animation films, most of them Short films but some feature-length movies as well, are shown in four different cinemas.
The festival sets various priorities like the Swiss film industry, children's film, history, Asia, the US, etc. The competition programme aims to challenge the artistic border of animation film and to push it forward.
