For the record, not all the feature films competing in this year’s very special edition of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival will be available online without restriction, dependent as this is on the rights negotiated for different territories.

In addition to the busy schedule above, the festival will also be organising a competition consisting of seven VR works, while the 2020 Official Selection further includes 79 shorts, 44 graduate films, 21 TV films and 35 commissioned films. And that’s without forgetting the unmissable professional crossroads that is the International Animated Film Market - Mifa which is set to unfold online (news).

The films selected within the Feature Films line-up are as follows:
