Definitely Dutch in Annecy

29 May 2019

Several Dutch (co-) productions have been selected for various sections of this year’s Annecy International Animation Film Festival (France). The animation film festival takes place 10-15 June 2019.

Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles, directed by Salvador Simo and produced by Signatia (ES) (co-produced by Submarine (NL)) has been selected for the Feature Films in Competition category. The animated feature tells the story of how Luis Buñuel made his controversial movie, and blends animation with real footage of the original. Earlier this year, Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles won the Special Jury Prize at the Animation Is Film Festival in Los Angeles.

In the Short Films in Competition section, Intermission Expedition will be competing, directed by Wiep Teeuwisse and produced by Valk Productions. During a holiday, a group of tourists struggle with letting go of their busy daily lives. When they finally do, they experience an overwhelming sense of meaningless – but also a sense of universal beauty within the here and now.

Tom van Gestel and Mascha Halberstad’s Fox & Hare – Birthday, co-produced by Submarine, will be competing in the TV Films in Competition section. In this episode, Fox dreams of giving Hare the most exquisite birthday ever, but a few pesky neighbors are out to spoil his plans.

In the Commissioned Films in Competition section Fraude – Dieselgate has been selected, directed by Roman Klochkov and Anna Heuninck and produced by the Erasmus University Rotterdam. The animated short explains the so-called “Dieselgate” scandal, when Volkswagen tampered with their vehicles to feign better emission performances in testing environments, which came to light in 2015.

Flow by Adriaan Lokman (produced by Valk Productions) has been selected for the Short Films section. For this section, four directors have been invited to showcase and talk about their film. Flow focuses on the central thread that runs through all our daily lives and our entire existence, the most vital element of all: air.

In The Big Sleep category, the late Dutch artist Rosto will be honored by screening two of his animated shorts: Reruns (2018) and Jona/Tomberry (2005). This category is dedicated to commemorating filmmakers who have passed away recently.
