Annecy Festival 2022: Selection Results


38 animation shorts were selected in the Official competition of this year's Annecy Festival (13-18 June 2022). 8 more films were selected in the Off-limits category (reserved for semi-experimental films), and 17 animation shorts in the Perspectives category. 9 animation shorts were selected for the Young Audience section.

Artistic director Marcel Jean reflects on the fact that the selection has fewer films (38) than usual; he attributes to the fact that the animation shorts are getting increasingly longer - implying that the selection committee had to make some 'tough choices'.

The Annecy 2022 Official Selection is carried out by the Artistic Director, Marcel Jean, with the Festival’s Films & Programme Planning team, Laurent Million, Yves Nougarède and Sébastien Sperer as well as: Cécile Giraud, Marie-Pauline Mollaret, Clémence Bragard, Gala Frecon,  Isabelle Vanini
