The International Festival of Animation, Videogames, and Comics is gearing up for its 2015 edition next September, issuing a call for entries “That which unites us” with a deadline of July 6th, 2015.

Animated films produced after January 1st, 2013 can be submitted for the following competition categories:

International (Short film competition)
Mexico Animation for Mexican residents

For the winner in the International category, the prize is a trip to attend the festival in Cuernavaca, México that will take place from September 9-13, 2015. (Read the call for entries for more details).

The prize for the Mexican winner is a trip to the 2016 edition of Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the most prestigious animation festival in the world.

The theme of the contest “That which unites us” is inspired by the fact that in our society there are gaps that split their members and weaken them. We believe that when these gaps are overcome, societies can become stronger and face together joint problems with a better outcome.

Please send your animated shorts to contribute to the awareness that together we go further, that united we remain.
