  • to support the formation of the animation community in Bulgaria with a common communication platform, events, network, and various activities
  • to support the producers and the community by building a network of contacts with important European organizations and institutions
  • to increase the visibility of Bulgarian projects in development and Bulgarian animation talent by creating and maintaining a catalog of actual projects and studios.
