2nd Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards Nominees Announced

The Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards have revealed the titles nominated in the nine categories of its second edition, which will be held on April 6 in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain. The selection reflects, for the second consecutive year, the diversity of works that are produced in the Ibero-American area, including works by acclaimed filmmakers as well as new talents. The list includes the latest films by directors such as Sebastián Mignona and Cecilia Atan (Argentina); Rafael Ribas, Gabriel Osorio and Álvaro Ceppi (Brazil); Raúl de la Fuente (Spain) and others.

The selection committee, made up of Agnieszka Kowalewska-Skowron (Poland), Loïc Portier (France), Barry O’Donoghue (Ireland), Paco Rodríguez and Zulay Rodríguez (Spain), had the difficult task of selecting the nominated works among the 244 applications received. The plurality of countries represented highlights in the list of nominations, a total of eight (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Peru and Portugal), led by Spain (21 nominations), Brazil (13) and Argentina (8). Three Spanish works share the leadership with the highest number of nominations (3) — the short films La Noria and Mum’s the Word, and the commissioned work “Lorenzo Live 2018 Intro”; while 11 titles have been selected in two categories.

The nominees include fine accomplishments in 2D, 3D and stop motion, as well as experimentation with others techniques such as cut-out, rotoscopy or sand animation,

with a broad representation of films aimed at both young and adult audiences. Nominated works will be evaluated by an international jury, which will select three finalist works in each category. The selection will be announced February 19 in Madrid, which will be broadcasted online.
