Colorful by Keiichi Hara was the front-runner in the feature-length category. The metaphysical thriller by the Japanese anime director has a dejected soul placed in the body of a 14-year-old boy, who just committed suicide. The soul needs to examine its former life and discover its sins and mistakes.

The Spanish Arrugas la Pelicula (Wrinkles) [review] won the audience award for best animated feature, whereas in the national competition La Boîte de sardines - Louise-Marie Colon won the corresponding prize.
