Annecy Announces Second Wave Of In Competition Films

This summer will see the return of the 'Cannes of Animation', The Annecy International Animation Festival. After two virtual editions, this year- all being well- will return to the full-blown in-person experience. We've already had the first wave of shorts in the competition announced. This week they have also revealed the selection in Graduation Short Films, TV Films and Commissioned categories.

The festival organisers received over 1,530 films in these categories, representing a total of 64 countries. From this, they selected 28 Graduation films, 24 TV films and 37 commissioned films, which will compete for several awards.

The next wave will come in the form of VR Works, set to be announced towards the end of April. Finally, the feature films election will be announced in early May. The 2022 edition of the festival is set to run from June 13 to June 18, with the Annecy International Animation Film Market (MIFA) taking place June 14-17.

Check out the full list of newly announced films, below.
