Why ANIMIST ?

Because there is a great need, in the field of animation, for platforms that will nurture, inspire, bring together and into view, offer room for action to, as well as broaden the horizons of children, animation aficionados, educational institutions and the animation industry.


Why the name ANIMIST ?

Because we are in Istanbul. Also because animist means "power that constantly renews and changes itself independently of human activities; all of one's instincts; the environment, which has not been subject to great variation by human hands and thus preserves its natural beauty", and many words derived from it:
