CITIA and its partners provide different educational resources for teachers to help them with their courses using animated images.
CITIA sought out the services of Catherine Puthod – a professor of plastic arts as well as CITIA relay-professor – to compile tips or teaching sheets for deciphering short films from the official roster of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
Designed with teachers and trainers in mind, these informational sources were aimed at assisting instructors in exploring animated pictures with their students.
Five short films are analyzed in these teaching sheets:
The House of Dust by Jean-Claude Rozec
Lettres de femmes by Augusto Zanovello
Seven Minutes in the Warsaw Ghetto by Johan Oettinger
Sillon 672 by Bastien Dupriez
The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan and Andrew Ruhemann

CITIA has created an interactive DVD for young fans of digital animated images and their teachers showing the different stages of making an animated sequence (from idea to final editing). The DVD is illustrated by a number of examples and can be used occasionally in the classroom or as an interactive support for the course.
Please contact us if you would like this DVD.

Beyond simply raising awareness, the aaa strives to give each group or individual the chance to make an animated short film.
