Another rain of nominations and prizes for Breton animation! Brittany Cinema: Brittany Cinema

Already crowned with numerous awards and numerous festival selections, several animated films, produced in Brittany and supported by Bretagne Cinéma, continue to stand out both in France and abroad.

The animated documentary Flee directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen, co-produced by the Rennes company Vivement Lundi! (with the financial support of the Brittany Region) and recently released in American theaters, received a few days ago the British Independant Film Award for Best Foreign Independent Film as well as the Best Documentary Award awarded by the New York Film Critics Circle. The film, which had already received the Cristal at the 2021 Annecy International Animation Film Festival as well as the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival, has also just been awarded European Film Awards and is preselected for Oscars 2022 🤞

The films produced by JPL Films, also from Rennes, are not left out either:

A heart of gold, animated short film by Simon Filliot (with the financial support of the Brittany Region) was awarded the Best Animated Film Award at the Ostia International Film Festival as well as a Special mention from the jury at FilmFest Düsseldorf. In November, the film had already won 5 awards: those of Best Screenplay, Best Director and Best Short Film at the Black Cat Award Festival in La Paz in Bolivia, the Get Shorty Award of the Fantasy Filmfest in Germany and the Best Animation Award of the prestigious Sapporo Short Fest in Japan!
The film is one of 18 French animation shorts eligible for Oscars 2022 🤞

Bear Hug, a short film directed by Margrethe Danielsen and produced by JPL Films and Mikrofilm (with the financial support of the Brittany Region), will begin its career in festivals with a very good selection at Paris Courts Ahead (from January 10 to 16, 2022), in the Young Audience competition.

Congratulations to all !
