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.

80 animated short films in the categories “International Competition”, “Swiss Competition” and “Kids Film Competition” are hoping to win the favour of both the jury and the audience. They have been selected out of 2,325 submissions from 95 countries. Most submissions came from the US, France, the UK and Germany, but animation films even arrived in Baden from Ghana, Nepal, Kyrgyzstan, Kuwait, Uzbekistan and Malta.
