This will be BAB's fourth international festival of animated films for children. Showcased will be 110 animated movies from 18 countries though this year's festival will be mainly devoted to animated movies from Scandinavia.

Bibiana, the organizer of BAB, has prepared animated movies at Kino Tatra, September 17 - 20 everyday at 10, 13:30, 15:30, 17 and 19:30. Morning shows are reserved for schools, while afternoon shows are open to the public. There is no entrance fee during the day.
