Annecy Unveils 2015 Shorts and TV Competition Lineup
The Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the world’s longest-running animation festival, has announced part of its selections for this year’s festival, which will take place June 15-20 in the lakeside town of Annecy, France. See the complete list here.
From a record 2,600 submissions, the festival selected 198 projects, divided into the following categories:
- 53 short films in competition, including 10 Off-Limits
- 49 graduation films
- 29 TV films
- 35 commissioned films
Out of competition
- 32 short films
With the festival’s focus on women filmmakers this year (including an all-women jury), they’ve broken out the number of women filmmaker selections. In the short film competition 30% of the filmmakers were women while in the graduation films category there was an even 50-50% split between women and men.
The selection process was carried out by the festival’s artistic director Marcel Jean, and Laurent Million, Yves Nougarède and Sébastien Sperer from the Films & Program Planning department at CITIA [pictured below].
Feature film selections will be announced at the end of April.
