at night the light is brightest
international open air
animation film festival
July 13—17, 2023
Russia. Kaluga and Moscow

Insomnia is a truly independent animation festival. It takes place every year in the big and beautiful field surrounded by forest and river.

Hundreds of best fresh animated films from all over the world on three really big screens — four nights in a row!

During daylight, our guests can enjoy other festival activities — lectures, live music concerts, performances, workshops, craft market, exhibitions, and art installations.

Those who don’t like tents and mosquitoes can attend competition screenings in Moscow movie theaters.

Congratulations to the winners!
