The International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, has announced the nominees for its 47th Annual Annie Awards. Trigger and XFlag’s Promare, DLE and Madhouse’s Okko’s Inn, and Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You anime films received nominations in the Best Animated Independent Feature category. The other nominees in the category are Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles and I Lost My Body.
ASIFA-Hollywood added the Best Animated Independent Feature award for the 2016 awards in order to “recognize not only features in wide release, but also the independent animators, international studios, anime and special productions that might not otherwise get the attention they deserve.”
The Annie Awards recognize outstanding achievement in animation. The awards ceremony will be held on January 25, 2020.
