This year’s Quirino Awards will take place on May 13 in the Canary Island city of La Laguna, Tenerife.
#Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards
The three stop-motion productions swept every category in which they were represented at the Ibero-American awards ceremony.
Animation is booming as never before in Spain’s Canary Island of Tenerife, boosted by extraordinary tax incentives. Arguably, no other site in Europe is currently transforming so quickly into an international animation production hub.
The awards, which honor animation from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal, will return to Tenerife on April 16–18, 2020.
Spain, Brazil, and Argentina lead the way with the most nominated projects.
The call is open to filmmakers in the 23 countries that comprise the Ibero-American region.
Leading representatives from the Ibero-American animation industry are gathering this week to talk about the booming animation scene in the region.
The first-ever Quirino Awards, honoring Ibero-American animation achievements, announced their final nominations today.
Fourteen countries submitted projects for the first-ever Quirino Awards.
The countries that submitted the most pieces were Spain, Brazil, and Argentina, Colombia, and Mexico.
The awards and a meeting of the Ibero-American animation industry will take place over three days next April.
Coming in 2018! Mark your calendars!
