Annecy film festival

The Annecy International Animation Film Festival was created in 1960 and takes place at the beginning of June in the town of Annecy, France. Initially occurring every two years, the festival became an annual event in 1998. It is one of the four international animated film festivals sponsored by the International Animated Film Association (French: Association Internationale du Film d’Animation, or ASIFA).


The festival is a competition between cartoon films of various techniques (animated drawings, cut-out papers, modeling clay, computer-generated imagery, etc.) classified in various categories:

  • Feature films
  • Short films
  • Films produced for television and advertising
  • Student films
  • Films made for the internet (since 2002)

Throughout the festival, in addition to the competing films projected in various cinemas of the city, an open-air night projection is organized on Pâquier, in the center of town, amongst the lake and with the mountains. According to the topic of the festival, classic or recent films are projected upon the giant screen. On Saturday evening, all the award winners are presented.


The festival dates: June 15-20, 2020.

The submission deadline for short films: February 15, 2020.
