Animated short films production fund

This support for production concerns animated short films which are intended primarily for cinema release, regardless of the director's nationality.

To begin the application you must click on the ONLINE REGISTRATION button just bellow and then create a new profile.


Animation techniques can be: puppets, objects, pixilation, clay, papers, cut-outs, low-relief, paint or sand on glass, drawing on paper or celluloid. Traditional "handmade" animation on graphic tablet can be considered (please contact us before sending your file). 3D computer animation is excluded.

The project can be submitted directly by the director or by a short film production company, acting as an executive producer. In the case of foreign films, the French executive producer can file an application for the project (upon presentation of the coproduction contract). The producer will have to take on the artistic, technical and financial responsibility of the project and be able to provide a signed contract for transfer of copyright with the project's author(s)/director(s).

The animation must not have started before the meeting date of the professional committee in charge of assessing the project.
