AMV, short for Anime Music Video, is a genre created entirely by fans for fans. These are videos that anyone can create using footage from one or more anime mixed with a song of their choice. AMV's have been made for decades by devoted fans who use their own computers and spend weeks and months until they complete a masterpiece. The best AMVs take part in competitions held online or during festivals, which are shown on the big screen to the delight of the audience.
The Aniventure AMV contest is part of the festival from its first edition and is with international participations. Videos compete in several categories - Action, Drama, Comedy and other and the winners are selected by a jury. The best videos are shown during Aniventure as the culmination of the first day of the festival.
