For Animation Filmmakers:


  • Have an animation short to premiere/feature online, and need a comprehensive presentation (in the form of interview/review)? Zippy Frames is a trusted independent animation news website, which has featured a vast array of short animation films, from the more narrative to the outright experimental ones. Send us your film for consideration

⇒ Here's more info how to submit  


  • Animation festival submission seems both a laborious and a mindless process for independent animation filmmakers. We can make the process seem more structured, less laborious and more promising for your festival career of your film - handled by the same people who manage Zippy Frames (via Scheriaa Productions)

For Animation and Film Festivals & Events


  • Zippy Frames hosts an extended database of call for entries from animation festivals. A large part of its news roundup covers animation festivals and film festival news. However, not everything can be covered with the same depth and extent as it could (and should) have been. If you're interested in getting in talks and an offer for a festival promotion agreement, contact our Head Editor (vassilis AT zippyframes DOT com)


  • For festivals, conferences, film promotions, companies and products related to the animation industry, we offer reviews, interviews or video reports that promote your services or products in a creative and friendly way. For more info, email: info AT zippyframes DOT com



One of the most original ideas is again taking place during Annecy Festival (France): Annecy + hosts short films rejected by the festival.

annecy-plusThe veteran independent animator Bill Plympton and animation journalist and enthusiast Nancy Denney-Phelps host 22 films that were rejected by the Annecy official selection committee.

Since the Annecy Festival received this year a number of 2500+ entries (to select only 52 films in its short competitive section), a lot of interesting and important films have inadvertently been left out.

ANNECY +  will screen 22 films out of 400 submitted on Friday, 14 June (20:30).

 Important highlight of the event includes a sneak peak at an excerpt from Bill Plympton's new feature film, Cheatin'.

Location:  Cafe des Arts, Passage de l' Isle 4 on the island, during the 2013 Annecy Film Festival (10-15 June).

Next day (Saturday, 15 June, 13:00 pm) the team of Annecy+  organizes a picnic, paddle boat race and rounders game. The picnic is held out at the end of the concrete walkway across from the old Bonlieu, at the edge of the grass by the lake.
