Annecy Cristal for Best Short went to 'Percebes'

Published at 15 June 2024

The latest short film by Laura Gonçalves and Alexandra Ramires receives an award at the 64th Annecy Film Festival.

Produced by BAP - Animation Studios and Ikki Films, 'Percebes' was awarded Best Short Film at the Annecy Festival.

This award made Portugal's presence at the festival even more remarkable. Portugal was the country of honour at Annecy this year, and to celebrate the centenary of Portuguese animation, the Annecy Festival presented seven programs of Portuguese short films, and more than 200 industry professionals and Portuguese students attended the festival.

"Gonçalves’ previous film, The Garbage Man,on which Ramires worked as an animator, competed at Annecy and won best short at Zagreb in 2022. Ramires’s 2020 short Tie, on which Gonçalves worked as an animator, screened in competition at Zagreb and Toronto. Animated in painterly 2D and produced by BAP – Animation Studios and Ikki Films, Percebes exemplifies Portugal’s greatest animation achievement to date: Shorts and occasional features of high artistic ambition and social point." - by Jamie Lang (Variety).
