Fourth Quirino Awards Announces 2021 Finalists

The Ibero-American Animation Quirino Awards announced the 2021 finalists Wednesday at an event held at Casa de América in Madrid. A total of 24 works will compete in nine categories.

Spain tops the list of finalists with 11 titles nominated, followed by Mexico and Argentina with six, Chile and Brazil with four, Colombia and Portugal with three and Costa Rica with one. Filmmaker debuts occupy a prominent place in the selection, reflecting the dynamism and commitment to new talents in animation from the 23 countries that make up the Ibero-American region.

The Spanish short film Wayback is the work with the most nominations (3); followed by the Chilean-Brazilian feature film Nahuel and the Magic Book; the Portuguese short film Tie and the Spanish short film Homeless Home, both co-produced with France; and the Chilean series Petit Season 2, co-production with Argentina and Colombia, with two nominations each.

The winners will be announced on May 29 at a ceremony in the city of La Laguna, Tenerife, the new venue sponsored by the Cabildo de Tenerife through the Tenerife Film Commission. The ceremony will also pay tribute to the Cuban cartoonist and animation film director Juan Padrón, creator of Ibero-American animation classics such as Elpidio Valdés and Vampires in Havana.

The finalists will again be narrowed down to the winning projects by jurists Jean François Tosti (TAT productions; France), Joana Toste (animator and director; Portugal), Paula Taborda (Planeta Junior; Brazil) and Sergio Jiménez (Pinkman.TV; Spain). You can see the full list of semi-finalists here.
