Pannonia Film Studio (originally spelled as Pannónia Filmstúdió) is a Hungarian animation film company. Being the only animation company in Hungary until the 1990s, it is notable for producing the majority of Hungarian animated shorts, television series and full-length films, many classic examples of Eastern European Animation (both traditional 2D animation and Stop Motion).

The studio began its work as a division of the Hungarian Film Production Company in the 1950s, becoming independent in 1957. The peak of the studio's work was in the '70s and '80s, when it released the films for which it is most remembered. Their animated short The Fly (A légy) won the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film in 1981. In the 1990s, when numerous western animated shows were imported to Hungary, the company couldn't keep up with the competition. Since then, they haven't produced any big hit, and struggle with financial problems. They are also notable for producing most Hungarian dubs, many of which are fan favorites.


In 2020, the Hungarian National Film Institution, who owns the rights of Pannonia's works, made many of them available to watch for free on their YouTube channel.
