Film Competitions

Competitions at Fantoche

The competitions for animated short film are at the core of Fantoche. Since it’s very first edition 1995 the „International Competition“ has been in place, in 2009 the „Swiss Competition“ and the competition for children’s films „Best Kids“ were added – at the same time that the festival was carried out annually.

In 2016 we received 1394 film submissions from 79 countries, 81 of them from Switzerland. Thanks to the newly introduced digital upload the number of submissions could be increased again. 

The film submissions for the upcoming festival 2017 is closed. Details and the regulations can be found here: Submit your film
