The Swiss Animation Industry Award is an expansion of the Fantoche Industry Day. We aim to showcase the Swiss commercial and commissioned animation landscape in all its different forms. The Swiss Animation Industry Award will present extraordinary animated commercials, interesting productions and discussions with important experts of the industry. We want to connect the aspiring local animation industry and explore its past, its present and its promising future.
