The Official Selection for Annecy 2016 is online (for all categories except feature films).
After watching just shy of 2,700 films that were sent in from 85 countries, the Festival’s Artistic Director Marcel Jean and the Films & Programme Planning team are happy to announce the films that made the cut for the 2016 Official Selection.
At the upcoming Annecy Festival, taking place from 13th-18th June 2016, you can find:
- 54 Short Films including 11 in the Off-Limits category
- 77 TV Series/Specials and Commissioned Films
- 54 Graduation Films
Out of Competition:
- 31 Short Films
Out of the films submitted for the Official Selection 2016, we noticed a rise in films made by women, especially in the Graduation category.
France, Belgium, Canada and Germany are the countries represented most in the Short Films in Competition category and we saw a comeback of films coming out of Spain, Estonia, New Zealand, Lebanon, Latvia and Brazil.
We also observed that the predominant themes were linked to political issues and hot social topics.
