3rd Quirino Awards Announce Ibero-American Animation Nominees

The Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards have announced the nominated titles in the nine categories of its third edition, which will be held on April 18 on the island of Tenerife. The selection reflects the richness, creativity and diversity of the animation produced in the Ibero-American regions and includes everything from popular fare to auteur or experimental works made by both established filmmakers and new talents.

With 14 each, Spain and Portugal top the list of countries with the most nominations, followed by Argentina and Brazil with 10 each. Also represented are Chile (four nominations), Mexico (four), Bolivia (two), Colombia (two), Costa Rica (one) and Paraguay (one). The 39 nominated works were selected from the 219 applications received, and will vie for finalist places in the categories of feature film, series, short film, school short film, animation for video game, commissioned film, visual development, animation design and sound design/original music.

The Spanish feature Klaus and the Portuguese shorts Uncle Thomas: Accounting for the Days and Nestor are the works with the highest number of nominations (four). Among those selected are works nominated for the Oscar and Goya awards, and others selected and awarded at international festivals such as Annecy, Locarno, TIFF, Dok Liepzig, IDFA or Havana, among others.

An international jury will choose three finalists in each category, to be announced at Casa de América de Madrid on Tuesday, February 18. The jury is made up of Alfredo Marun (Disney Television Animation) from Colombia; Anja Franczak (Human Ark), Poland; Simón Vladimir Varela (production designer and visual development artist for Pixar, Disney, Warner, etc.), El Salvador; Vera Verba (Sesame Workshop YouTube Channel), U.S.; and Véronique Encrenaz (MIFA Annecy), France.
