Come and discover the 2013 nominees for the Cartoon d’Or, pan-European award for best animated short film of the year.
Granted by CARTOON – the European Association of Animation Film with the support of the MEDIA Programme, it rewards the best since only prize-winning films from the major European festivals can compete.
From this short list, a jury of international experts selects five finalists and a winner. The Cartoon d’Or is annually awarded during the Cartoon Forum, the forum for the co-production, financing and distribution of European animation for TV and new media. The purpose of the Cartoon d’Or is to act as a pipeline between short filmmakers and the industry, and to help talented directors start a new project.
Launched in 1991, the first Cartoon d’Or went to British director Nick Park, still unknown at the time, for his film Creature Comforts. Other great names have followed, such as Sylvain Chomet, Jacques-Rémy Girerd, Mark Baker, Michael Dudok De Wit and Joanna Quinn.
