……………………………………………………………..

In the 20 years, between its creation in 1997 and today, ANCC has financed 271 films, 183 of whom, in the period 1997 – 2014.
The films belong to the following categories.

In the 17 years (1997-2014) ANCC financed an average of 11 films yearly:

Only in the last 3 years (2015-2017) ANCC financed a total of 88 films, respectively:

13 short animations

In the 3 years (2015-2017) ANCC financed an average of 11 films yearly:
