Following the recent public health announcements, theatres will unfortunately have to remain closed until February 8. 
We therefore have to postpone our 19th edition films' screenings until next Spring, when sanitary measures will allow us to hold public screenings again. 
Our professional activities and the award ceremonies (with the exception of the Audience Awards) will take place online, as planned.
Rewatch all the professional activities and the award ceremonies on our YouTube channel.

Every year, the Sommets du cinéma d’animation presents the best animated films from Quebec, Canada and elsewhere. The program includes a selection of international titles, a solid line-up of student films directed by young artists representing the future of animation cinema, an overview of Canadian and Quebec production, retrospectives, and activities for young audiences.

In addition to screenings, the Sommets du cinéma d’animation offers a range of special activities. The festival hosts a series of original and eclectic events: exhibits, performances, discussion forums with directors and artisans, workshops, film classes, entertaining and rewarding sessions with animation professionals and renowned guests, and festive evening activities.

The Sommets du cinéma d’animation is an essential annual rendez-vous that brings together animation artists and professionals as well as movie-lovers from all over. Recognized as reals landmarks in the animation world, Montréal can certainly boast of the asset that is the Sommets­, a major event that celebrates animation in all its bold and diverse forms and that highlights the knowledge and expertise of local practitioners of this art form.
