Swipe has been crowned as the first Pakistani animated film to have made it to the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
Revealing the news on official account, they wrote, “Celebrations! Swipe has officially been selected at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival 2021!”
Introducing the festival to their followers, they added, “Annecy Festival is the oldest and the highest-profile animation festival in the world, dating back to the 1960s with the biggest animation studios in attendance every year. This is momentous not only because Swipe is the first Pakistani animated film to ever be featured at Annecy, but also because for an animation studio like ours, that was launched merely two years ago, making it to Annecy is an absolute dream come true!”
