BURBANK, Calif. (August 25, 2015) – The International Animated Film Society, ASIFAHollywood, announces its ‘Call for Entries’ to begin September 1, 2015. The 43rd Annual Annie Awards is scheduled for Saturday, February 6, 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.
