Cindarella The Cat is the only Italian film featured in the main competition of the Annecy Animation Film Festival, the most prestigious event of this kind in Europe. This represents another recognition for the all-Neapolitan animation film directed by Alessandro Rak, Ivan Cappiello, Marino Guarnieri, and Dario Sansone, and produced by Mad Entertainment.

The selection in the Annecy competition comes after two David di Donatello Awards in the categories "Best Producer" and "Best Digital Effects". Producers Luciano Stella and Maria Carolina Terzi states: "We are glad to represent Italy in Annecy, a competition which for animations has the same meaning as Cannes for feature films." Annecy opens on June 11th, with over 7.000 industry professional expected from all over the world.
