Over 1,530 films were submitted from 64 countries in the graduation, TV Films and Commissioned Films of the  2022 Annecy Festival. Selecting 99 animation films, the selection rounds up the official competition shorts selection previously announced.

Checking some of the highlights, we find Wes Anderson (in flesh and blood) among the nominees in the commissioned films, with his directed music video 'Aline' from 'The French Dispatch' film.

We also find the Netflix stop-motion portmanteau film 'The House' (dir. Emma de Swaef, Marc James Roels, Niki Lindroth von Bahr, Paloma Baeza) in TV Films in Competition.
