The 1st Open Russian Festival of Animated Film was held in 1996 at a boarding house called "Birch Grove" near the town of Tarusa, Russia. Because of the extreme scarcity of Russian animation in the post-perestroika era, submissions from the last three years were accepted. Along with auteur films, commercial reels, video clips and television bumpers were allowed.

The prizes were handed out according to profession, and any member or guest of the festival was able to vote for their favourite film. The three leading winners were given wooden planks hewn by president Aleksandr Tatarskiy and signed by their colleagues. The festival served as a gathering for Russian animators who otherwise had few opportunities to see each other in an era after the break-up of Soyuzmultfilm. In addition to the festival, the location offered fresh air, skiing, and nearby historic sites.
