In Annecy, French animation is enjoying a new golden age

Cock-a-doodle Doo! This year, the International Animation Film Festival reflects the excellent creative health of the sector.

Special envoy to Annecy

We will long remember this edition of the Annecy Animation Festival. The sun that warmed the city was tempered by the coolness of the mountains and the edges of the lake. Over the week, this allowed more than thirteen thousand professionals and visitors from around a hundred countries to peacefully enjoy the aisles of the International Animation Market (Mifa).

Above all, the selection of films presented by the festival was quite exceptional. Not to say historic. The artistic director of the event Marcel Jean admits, with his proverbial Quebecois accent: “Let’s just say I had rich problems! The line-up was in its general balance of very high quality. Each of the films presented here was varied, original and will have bet on the intelligence of the public, whether it is the very explosive Unicorn Wars by Alberto Vazquez (released November 30), or the very poetic Little Nicholas by Amandine Fredon and Benjamin Massoubre.”
