The International Animated
Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, announces its ‘Call for Entries’ to begin
September 1st, 2015. The 43rd Annual Annie Awards is scheduled for Saturday,
February 6th, 2016 at UCLA’s Royce Hall.
There are 36
categories for consideration again this year, including production, individual
achievement and special juried awards. A
new category – Best Feature-Independent – has been added to the production
categories. “The Best Feature-Independent category is designed to highlight and
award feature films with a smaller release strategy,” says ASIFA-Hollywood
Executive Director, Frank Gladstone. The Best Video Game category has been
removed from this year’s consideration.
