Animefest is the oldest anime convention in The Czech Republic, Europe.

Animefest was held for the first time in 2004. It was and still is organised by Brněnští Otaku (translated as Brno otaku), at first a free group of otaku. As time went by, the convention became too large and for better organisation, a civic association Brněnští Otaku was founded in 2007. Animefest is one of the two largest conventions held in The Czech Republic, having around the same number of visitors as Advík, which is held in Prague, in July. Animefest holds Anime Music Video competition, the main prize of it being a plush doll of Totoro. This competition is held yearly since the first year of Animefest and because of that it is considered the main event of the year for most of Czech AMV creators. Since 2010, cosplay contest at Animefest is part of EuroCosplay event.[1]
