The 17th edition of the Sommets du cinema d’animation ended Sunday evening on a perfect note first with the event Winsor and Gertie, that took place just after the Awards Ceremony. If this edition offered more than ever a variety of events, it is also the films presented in competition which attest to the real dynamism and the high quality of animated film.
