40 Graduation Animation Shorts for Annecy Festival 2024

Ser Semilla animation short still

40 animation student films, from the US and Mexico to Korea, were selected for this year's Annecy Festival (9-15 June 2024). 23 countries are here represented, with France leading (7 French animation shorts selected), and UK following (4 films from 3 schools).

Stop-motion, 2D, 3D and AI films are also represented.

This year’s selection is particularly eclectic, with a strong emphasis on humour and frivolity, even the nonsensical. The films tackle intimate themes (family or romantic relationships, grief and resilience) through a fictional lens or personal accounts -  Marie-Pauline Mollaret, Annecy Festival Selection Committee member
