2021 Quirino Awards Announces 40 Animation Semi-Finalists

The Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards announced the shortlisted works for the fourth edition, with the awards ceremony set for May 29 in the Tenerife city of La Laguna (a Unesco World Heritage Site). Chosen from among 265 applications, 40 works from nine countries are in the running for finalist spots, which will be selected by an international jury. The finalist selections in nine categories will be announced on March 17 at Casa de América in Madrid.

Spain leads the list of countries with the most contenders (22), followed by Argentina (13), Chile (9), Mexico (8) and Colombia (7). Among the nominees there are also works from Brazil, Portugal, Costa Rica and, for the first time, the Dominican Republic. The feature film Nahuel and the Magic Book, the second season of the Petit series — both from Chile — and the Spanish short film Homeless Home have the highest number of nominations, with four each. Mexico, Spain and Argentina lead the categories of Feature Film, Short Film and Commissioned Film, respectively.

The jury made up of Jean François Tosti (TAT productions, France), Joana Toste (animator and director, Portugal), Paula Taborda (Planeta Junior, Brazil) and Sergio Jiménez (Pinkman.TV, Spain) will choose the three finalist works in each category. A committee made up of Agnieszka Kowalewska-Skowron, Loïc Portier, Sydney Padua, Paco Rodríguez and Ylka Tapia was in charge of selecting the shortlisted works.

In addition to the awards ceremony, the Quirino will once again bring together animation professionals at the Ibero-American Co-production and Business Forum, which will take place May 27-29 in La Laguna. In 2020, this industry activity brought together representatives of a hundred companies from 19 countries — including production companies, sales agencies, tv channels and distributors — who held more than 800 B2B meetings. Entries to participate in the forum will open in the coming weeks on the Quirino Awards website.

With the aim of offering a historical record of the awards, the organization has launched a search engine for the finalist and award-winning works in the different Quirino categories throughout its three editions. The search can be carried out from the “Palmares” tab on the Quirino Awards website using different filters such as edition, country or category.
