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 ‘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 was a new and absolutely amazing experience for me and the best possible motivation to keep on struggling with filmmaking - so that I will have the chance to visit the festival again in the future. I am truly thankful to everybody in the ÉCU team for that."
- Nikos Kellis, “Drag Me”, winner of ÉCU 2014
