14TH INTERNATIONAL ANIMATION FILM FESTIVAL
BADEN / SWITZERLAND, 6 – 11 SEPTEMBER 2016
The core focus of Fantoche is, without a doubt, the screening of current animated short films. And to enhance this focus further, Fantoche will be giving out three new awards in this year’s Swiss Competition: the winners of the New Swiss Talent, sponsored by Jingle Jungle, and the Swiss Fantastic, sponsored by the NIFFF Festival, are both selected by the international jury of experts. The Swiss Youth Award is sponsored by the Castellinaria Festival in Bellinzona and is presented by a specially selected multilingual jury of young people from Ticino and the canton of Aargau. These are all very valuable additions to the Swiss competition.
To judge the submissions, Fantoche involves experts from storytelling, sound design, film production and film schools. The composition of the jury changes from year to year. On 11th September 2016, the Fantoche juries and the audience will award 14 prizes at the closing ceremony.
