Anima, the 41st!

The whole Anima Festival team is honoured to announce the winners of our 2022 edition! In spite of the ever-changing health measures, Anima managed to hold its 41st edition in a relaxed and resolutely optimistic atmosphere. For ten animated days, we found you in good shape and in good spirits, with friends and family, in Flagey, at the Palace, at the Cinematek, in our many partner cinemas and on Anima Online.

Even if the sun and the health circumstances did not help, the Festival was a success thanks to you: A BIG THANK YOU for allowing Anima to shine once again this year!

A Special Award

In addition to the tradition prize list, the ceremony was the opportunity to award a special trophy to the person who gave the Festival its special atmosphere and made it a place where everyone feels at home. After founding the Anima Festival in 1982, Philippe Moins has been working for over 40 years for the recognition of animation as an art in its own right, within the Anima team, but also at many other festivals around the world. This work includes such reference books as Les Maîtres de la pâte, Le Cinéma d’animation en cent films and Stop Motion, un autre cinéma d’animation. He has also been an inspiring and generous teacher of the aesthetics of animation to younger generations. With his flair for sensing talent, many Belgian creatives are grateful for the support and guidance they have received from him. It is for all these reasons that the Anima Festival wanted to offer Philippe Moins the Honorary Uō trophy for his contribution to the influence of animation.
