French animated films triumph at the 1st Emile Awards
French productions and co-productions picked up more than half of the prizes handed out at the first Emile Awards Ceremony, which was held in Lille on December 8. These newly-created awards honor excellence in European animated filmmaking.
For this inaugural year, 48 nominees were selected from a total of 500 productions submitted. The 16 award-winners were spread across four sections:
- Student Films and Short Films
- Feature Films

In each category, a jury of three European industry experts chose three nominees to compete for the awards. The winners were selected through an online vote made by members of the European Animation Awards Association, which organizes the awards in partnership with the French Hauts-de-France region and Pictanovo.
