The Annecy International Animation Film Festival has once again drawn attention to emerging talent, and among the selected works for its 2024 Graduation Films category is “Weeds” by Pola Kazak, produced by MAUR film and the Film Academy of Miroslav Ondricek in Pisek from the Czech Republic.

With a staggering 1,194 Graduation Films submitted for consideration, the competition was fierce. However, only 40 films made the final cut, representing 23 countries. France leads the charge with 7 films from 6 schools, followed closely by the UK and the USA.

Congratulations also to another Czech representative “Rising Above” by Natálie Durchánková from FAMU Prague.
