Category Rules

Films should be independent in spirit and original in perspective. Open to all European animated work in the moving image field (can include web pages) made with less than 50% participation by a major studio or television broadcaster. Films may be submitted in any language, however must have subtitles in English except if the film is in English it must have French subtitles. Appropriate subtitles are required to ensure accurate judging abilities. A synopsis of no more than 180 characters, in English and French, a screenshot from the film and a short director's biography also in English and French are required upon submission.

Past winners include 'Planet Tobler' (Ireland, USA), 'Late Season' (Austria), 'The Old Man and the Bird' (Germany) 'Mend and Make Do' (United Kingdom), `Grab Me? (Greece), 'I Am Tom Moody?' (UK), 'A Lost and Found Box of Human Sensations?' (Germany), 'Paths of Hate?' (Poland).

Being able to use parts of the film or having a trailer/preview of the film would be helpful for promotional purposes within the festival and our events leading up to it.

“It is fantastic to be part of ÉCU, it has been my dream for quite some time now to have a film screen in Paris. Also, to have a screening at such a prestigious festival as well, it is more than a dream come true, it is amazing!“
- Rachel Moore, Director of UP IN A PLANE, part of the Official selection in the European Independent Animated Film category at ÉCU 2015.

“I’m honoured to be amongst such crafted filmmakers...such wonderful people.” – Daniela Leitner, director of LATE SEASON, winner of Best European Independent Animated Film 2017.
