NEW DELHI: Eight feature films and around 20 short films from all over the world are to compete for the 26 awards at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in France this month.

The Festival is being held in Annecy in France from 15 to 20 June.

Held once every two years, the Festival became an annual feature in 1998. It specialises in animated films - shorts, medium, and feature length.

The feature films are: Adama (France by Simon Rouby), Avril et le Monde truque (France, Canada), Belgium (Franck Ekinci and Christian Desmares), Mune (France - Alexandre Heboyan, Benoit Philippon), Pos eso (Spain - Sam Orti), Sabogal (Colombia - Juan Jose Lozano, Sergio Mejia Forero), Sarusuberi: Miss Hokusai (Japan - Keiichi Hara), The Case of Hana & Alice (Japan - Shunji Iwai) and Tout en haut du monde (Denmark, France - Remi Chaye).

Apart from juries for features and non-features, there will be a jury of FIPRESCI (international Federation of Film Critics) and two separate juries of children between eleven and sixteen years of age for judging features and shorts.

There will also be a market for animation films during the festival, apart from some Master classes by experts in animation. The emphasis will also be on women making animation films, and there will be a large number of films out of competition.
