Portugal will be the featured country at the Annecy Animation Film Festival in France, which will take place from 9 to 15 June 2024 and is one of the world's leading events dedicated to this film genre.

It will be an international showcase of the best that Portugal has to offer in animation. A year after "Ice Merchants", by João Gonzalez, was nominated for the Oscars and received several international awards, including the Prix Découverte in Cannes, where it premiered, becoming the most awarded Portuguese animated film ever, this highlight at the Annecy festival represents recognition of the quality of Portuguese animated cinema and a decisive event for its internationalisation.


The high-profile participation in Annecy comes after the success of the Portugal-France 2022 Cross Season, which took place between February and October last year and brought together representatives from both countries and the various governmental areas, with Europe of Culture as one of its areas of activity.
