Animac 2022 at CCCB

Screening and talk with Joanna Quinn



Animac presents at the CCCB its programme for the 2022 edition and pays homage to Joanna Quinn, Animac Honorary Award 2021 and a very important figure in the world of contemporary animation, with a retrospective of her work. 


Animac presents in Barcelona the new features and contents of this year's edition, which will be held in Lleida from 3 to 6 March of 2022. Under the slogan "Forces of Imagination", this year's edition is dedicated to the power of imagination. 

Animac at CCCB has the honor to be joined by Joanna Quinn, one of the most renowed animators, reckognised for her unmistakable, free and precise drawing style, with a great sense of humour. Quinn will offer us the keys of her career as a director and animator. And, once the projection of her short films is over, we will have the opportunity to hold a conversation moderated by Carolina López, director of Animac. 

Last year, Joanna Quinn received the Animac Honorary Award 2021 (online, due to pandemic restrictions), in an edition dedicated to the best animation of the last 25 years, the same as Animac's 25th anniversary. This year we will be able to have Joanna and her close collaborator Les Mills at the CCCB to talk to us about her career as one of the great references in contemporary animation.
