Long forgotten, restored, or recently released works … the CNC offers us a delightful taste of the masterpieces found within its archives.

During a rare showing to celebrate 50 years of preserving and showcasing France’s cinematographic heritage, the CNC takes us on a journey to discover precious and rare animated films from both past and present.

Enjoy a selection of either long-lost or never-before-seen works such as The Machine Men (René Laloux, 1978) and Don Quixote’s Memoirs (Robert Lapoujade, 1978-80), as well as restored classics that include The Chimney Thief (Paul Grimault, 1944), Sleeping Beauty (Alexandre Alexeieff, 1935), Minotaur’s Ball (Lorenzo Recio, 1998), and a few rare foreign films.This is also great opportunity to enjoy a rebirth of Alexeieff-Parker’s famous pinscreen animation.

With Annecy Classics, the Festival pays tribute to timeless shorts and features to remind us of the great moments in the history of animation. It highlights avant-garde techniques, the journey of brilliant directors, and celebrates key events. Take a break and rediscover the great animated classics!
