L’Établissement de communication et de production audiovisuelle de la Défense (ECPAD) reveals a selection of its prized archive footage.

With Annecy Classics, the Festival is paying tribute to timeless films which have made an impact on the history of animation. These screenings are the opportunity for reminding us about the journey of brilliant directors, highlighting the avant-garde techniques in animation, putting a focus on emotional storylines, and celebrating key events. Take a break and rediscover the great animated classics!

Discover a selection of audiovisual archives from the animation section of the Ministry of the Armed Forces directed by Jacques Rouxel, René Laloux, Bruno Gaumetou and José Xavier. The six short films to be presented were part of the heyday of humorous cartoons by the ECPAD and deal with defence, the navy, and subjects in society such as health, the economy and work in an original way.
