According to the festival, more than 1,530 films were submitted from 64 countries; overall, male and female directors are equally represented in these categories.

Marcel Jean, Artistic Director commented, “This year, the selection of TV and Commissioned films stands out for the emphasis on themes linked to female sexuality, turning the spotlight on female characters and important female figures. We are thrilled by this evolution in the themes, which leads towards our desire for equality. We also noticed an explosion of increasingly larger formats, undoubtedly linked to platforms developing that are less subject to time constraints. Lastly, the selection reveals a great year for animated music video production.”
