After celebrating its 40th birthday during the 2017 Festival, the over-the-top "Spike and Mike's Sick and Twisted Animation Festival" is back!

The Midnight Specials are a part of the Annecy Festival special programmes for the second year! These night-time screenings are exclusively for a mature audience and they present the dark, spicy, off-the-wall, extravagant, sexy and crazy!

With a keen eye for spotting the obscure and an incomparable flair for knowing if a film will be able to stimulate the audience, Spike and Mike were behind the launch of the biggest names in animation and they also took part in the creation of Beavis and Butthead, Wallace and Gromit, and Happy Tree Friends among many others. Discovering collections of unusual films is a part of their art, thus allowing them to propel this festival directly to the summit of the reference point for short films!

Once again this year, we are proud to present this new selection to you!
