Annecy Announces Film Selections for 2013 Festival

The world’s longest-running and largest animation festival, Annecy, announced short film and TV selections today for its 2013 edition, which will take place June 10-15 in Annecy, France. This year’s competition will consist of 52 shorts, 51 graduation films, 35 TV series and specials, 11 music vids, 23 commercial projects and 4 educational/industrial films. Feature film selections will be announced at a later date.

Films that were rejected from competition still have an opportunity to screen at Annecy +, the renegade Annecy offshoot organized by Bill Plympton and Nancy Denney-Phelps. The seventh annual Annecy + takes place on the Friday of the festival. Submissions are being accepted until May 13. Submission details on Facebook.

    The first Annecy + was a hoot! The films were screened on a cracked wall behind a sports bar in the old city. A crowd of about 400 people showed up for the festive atmosphere – with musical performances and loud support for the films. This year, out of over 2400 submissions, they picked only 42 in the short films category. If Annecy + shows all the non-selected films it could take days!
    Oh well, time send MIMI AND GACK – my non-selected film to Annecy+ – hoping to get some animation love.
