International Animation Festival 23 - 29.09.2024
The Emile Awards return and come for the first time to Greece and to ANIMASYROS!

The Emile Awards return, after six years of absence, and come for the first time to Greece! The award ceremony that will herald the new era of the legendary European animation awards will take place in Syros and at the historic Apollo Theatre of Hermoupolis, on Monday, September 23, as part of this year's ANIMASYROS Festival.

Following two highly successful editions in Lille, France, in 2017 and 2018, the European Animation Awards, named after French pioneers Emile Reynaud and Emile Cohl, are being revived by a group of esteemed animation professionals from across Europe. Vassilis C. Karamitsanis, president of ANIMASYROS, serves as the president of the Awards' organizing committee.

The grand celebration of European animation returns to award the best films of the year, to honor the talent and achievements of creators and professionals from more than 30 countries, and to highlight the diversity and creativity of the large European animation community.

Detailed information about the new era of the Emile Awards will be unveiled in two press conferences in June, at World Festival of Animated Film Animafest Zagreb (Croatia) and the Annecy International Animation Film Festival (France).

Stay tuned for more updates!
