"Cartoon Club", the International festival of animated films, comics and games

A rich programme of events will animate the thirty-second edition of the Cartoon Club, scheduled July 9 to 17 in Rimini. Following the success of 2015 which attracted 90 thousand visitors, this year the organisers expect at least 100 thousand people to flock to the event.

Among the numerous exhibitions that will transform Rimini into the cartoon capital: "Osvaldo Cavandoli, The Line and beyond  ...", a journey through  the life of the creator of The Line with boards and video installations, or the world famous "Carosello" commercial created for "Lagostina" "Heart and Steel"  with legendary Japanese super robots, Goldrake and Mazinga from the 70s and 80s revived in the fashionable backdrop of the DuoMo Hotel.

A full immersion into the Marvel world awaits the Cartoon Club public with the screening of the never-released episodes of the incredible Disney Marvel XD Ultimate series Spider-Man vs. Sinister Six and the Avengers: Ultron Revolution, scheduled for July 14 in Piazzale Fellini. The following day, in collaboration with national TV channel, Italia 1, the national premiere of "Lupin III vs Detective Conan" will be aired.

Lastly, from July 14 to 17 Piazzale Fellini will host Riminicomix, the comics and games exhibition market celebrating its twentieth edition with a new area reserved for publishers of the sector. And last but not least, the awards ceremony of the six competitions scheduled during the Festival: Signor Rossi Award, Cartoon Club Award, Franco Fossati Award, Fede a Strisce Award, Cartoon Junior Award and Cartoon Kids Award. The latter awarded by a jury of 500 children aged between 6 and 11 years.
