In the newly created Best Animation Music Video category, three works are competing that confirm the ability of Ibero-American animation to transcend its own borders. All the Best is a music video by Pablo Roldán for Siamés, an Argentine electropop band; It’s Up to the Future is a song by poet and musician Reynaldo Bessa animated by Brazilian illustrator and animator Nat Grego. Finally, I Inside the Old I Dying by Chilean directors Cristóbal León and Joaquín Cociña brings to life a song from the latest album by English artist PJ Harvey.

A jury made up of directors José Miguel Ribeiro (Portugal), Marcela Rincón (Colombia) and Wesley Louis (UK), along with Zane Valeniece (head of Acquisitions for the Latvian public television, LTV) and Emmanuèle Petry (co-founder and producer at Dandelooo, France), will be in charge of selecting the winners, which will be announced on 11 May at the Leal Theater in San Cristóbal de La Laguna, on the island of Tenerife.

The Quirino Awards celebrate excellence across a range of categories, from feature films and series to shorts and music videos. The diversity of themes and styles reflects the richness of Ibero-American animation, showcasing its ability to captivate audiences across borders and cultures.
