Four films will compete for the statuette designed by the Valencian artist Mar Revert. The Japanese “Cats. A trip back home “; The Mexican “Treasures”; The Ecuadorian “Instantanea” and the Argentine “Anida and the floating circus” The jury chaired by the writer Luis Gasca, accompanied by Felix Vanginderhuysen, secretary of the European children’s film association, Agurtzane Intxaurraga, Goya award for best animation film 2017, Josep Arbiol , director of the Mice festival, and Javier Tostado, president of Animat, will unveil the winner at the closing gala to be held on Sunday October 29 at the Mercantile Athenaeum of Valencia.
