Animation! Ventana Sur, together with Quirino Awards for Ibero-American Animation (Tenerife) and Pixelatl Festival (Mexico), joined forces to create the Ibero-American Animation League.
This alliance responds to the objective shared by the three events to promote the creation and development of audiovisual projects across the region, consolidating collaboration bonds between Ibero-American countries.
Since its launch in 2018, different initiatives have been carried out, the most important being La Liga award, an invitation for an Ibero-American project as fully paid participant in the three events. On the other hand, for the Annecy Festival and its Market MIFA, there was a special program bringing together Ibero-American participation in the event.
‘Dos pajaritos’, the series co-production project between Can Can Club from Argentina and Palermo Estudio from Uruguay, was the first La Liga award winner. It participated in the 2018 Animation! and 2019 Quirino Awards editions, and it already has a French co-producer: Autour de minuit, Nicolás Schmerkin’s company.
Since the beginning of this year and to continue spreading this collaborative spirit, Ibero-American artists have been invited to make their own version of the original logo designed by the Argentine Juan Pablo Zaramella. Studios from Chile, Argentina, Mexico, Colombia and Ecuador were the first to create pieces that circulated on social networks.
