The most important film festival dedicated to animation is currently underway. Traditionally, the event's program includes Polish productions.

The Annecy festival is one of the oldest and the most important animated film festivals in Europe. Every year, it gathers over 150,000 viewers and becomes a meeting place for animated film professionals from around the world. Films featured during Annecy compete for the title of best short film, best TV and commissioned film, as well as best graduation film – and the winners receive the Cristal Award. 

As in previous years, the programme of the 2021 edition also includes Polish films. The animated film “Even Mice Belong in Heaven” directed by Denisa Grimmova and Jan Bubenick, co-produced by Animoon studio, even has its premiere there (you can read more about it here). 

In turn, the following films are competing for the title of best short animated film: “The Moon” by Tomek Popakul, “Fury” by Julia Siuda, “Green” by Karolina Kajetanowicz, “Anemone Temple” by Justyna Pazdan, “The Place” by Sylwia Zawiła, “On Time” by Zbigniew Czapla, and “Babies and Bear 'Balloons'” by Marek Skrobecki.
