By the 1970s, the short form had become the most important animation medium for formal experiments and artistic self-expression. The intellectual caricature-parable genre that had characterised the 1960s was followed by the emergence of parabolic short films, in which political and social overtones were often increasingly prominent. Documentary animations that follow sociological methods in live action feature films and documentaries of the era address the social and political issues of the 1970s.

With the spread of full-length animated movies and TV-series in this period, autonomous short films appeared first and foremost at film festivals, which also allowed them to reach countries behind the Iron Curtain.
