During the entire Festival week (2 to 7 May), the Mercedes-Benz Museum will have a presence in Stuttgart's inner city: There will be workshops and interactive events for kids in the Festival Garden between Königstrasse and Schlossplatz. From Tuesday to Friday the programme starts at 3.00 p.m. and 4.30 p.m., and at the weekend also at 1:30 p.m.
First held in 1982, the ICFS has developed into one of the world's most important events dedicated to cartoons as an art form. In past years, over 80,000 visitors have watched more than 1000 films in over 200 individual events. The Mercedes-Benz Museum has been the venue for the Festival since 2011, and a premium sponsor since 2012.
