"Belarusfilm" regularly participates in many international film festivals. At the 53rd International Film Festival for Children and Youth in Zlín (Czechia, 2013) the film "Pilipka" by Tatyana Kublitskaya was awarded the highest prize of the festival "Golden Slipper" in the category "The Best Animated Cartoon".

There is the emblem of National Film Studio "Belarusfilm" on the stamps.



An animated cartoon is a film for the cinema, television or computer screen, which is made using sequential drawings, as opposed to animations in general, which include films made using clay, puppet and other means.

Early examples of attempts to capture the phenomenon of motion into a still drawing can be found in paleolithic cave paintings, where animals are often depicted with multiple legs in superimposed positions, clearly attempting to convey the perception of motion.

The phenakistoscope (1832), zoetrope (1834) and praxinoscope (1877), as well as the common flip book, were early animation devices to produce movement from sequential drawings using technological means, but animation did not develop further until the advent of motion picture film.
