This past June the Annecy festival celebrated Japanese animation with great honours...This morning we have learned of the terrible fire which has torn through the Kyoto Animation Studios, with unfortunate loss of life for some.
The Mifa has just ended with a new record edition, consolidating its status as the largest single market in the world devoted to animated film.
Marcel Jean, the Annecy Festival’s Artistic Director, has just announced the official list of Feature Films in Competition, in the Features and Contrechamp categories.
Since the Short Films selection was recently announced, today Annecy discloses the list of Graduation Films, as well as the TV and Commissioned Films.
A first portion of the Official Selection is revealed today. There are 80 short films in competition at the Annecy Festival 2019.
