His list of contacts commanded the utmost respect.</p> <p>Pierre-Édouard excelled at his profession, in particular regarding sound because he had a genuine musician’s ear.</p> <p>He loved the atmosphere at Annecy, which was one of his favourite events. In 2021, during the 60<sup>th</sup> anniversary ceremony and on the eve of his retirement, the Festival publicly presented him with an "Honorary Rabbit" in recognition of his long and outstanding contribution to the quality of the screenings.</p> <p>The entire Annecy Festival team joins alongside his family and friends in honouring the memory of one of its most loyal companions.</p> Mon, 06 Feb 2023 00:00:00 +0100 The Festival Unveils its 2023 Poster! https://www.annecy.org/news:a2794 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2794 In 2023, Mexican animation will be in the spotlight, and we entrusted the Annecy Festival’s official poster design to Animator and Director Jorge R. Gutierrez, who will also be one of our jury members. An aficionado of Mexican culture and folklore, he has created a genuine joyous and heart-warming firework display of references announcing a very colourful edition!<br /><p><em>"Jorge’s work is deeply rooted in Mexican popular culture and folklore, but it is also zealously festive. He flaunts a generous, Baroque, and colourful artistry that is full of surprises, which incarnates the Festival’s very spirit.

Gutierrez</strong> is a Mexican animator, painter, voice actor, writer and director.</p> <p>A CalArts Experimental Animation BFA & MFA graduate, Gutierrez has completed various films, cartoons, and paintings exploring his love affair with Mexican pop and folk culture.</p> <p>Gutierrez was Director & Co-Writer of the Guillermo del Toro produced animated feature <em><strong>The Book of Life</strong></em>, which earned him a 2014 Golden Globe Award nomination. Along with his wife and muse, Sandra Equihua, they created the multiple Emmy Award-winning animated series <em><strong>El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera</strong></em> for Nickelodeon. Gutierrez most recently created, wrote, and directed the event series <em><strong>Maya and the Three</strong></em> for Netflix which won 2 Annie Awards, and was nominated for 5 Emmys.</p> <p>Gutierrez is currently developing and writing/directing a Netflix animated feature named <em><strong>I, Chihuahua</strong></em> with Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias.</p> <p style="margin-top: 40px; text-align: center; font-size: 18px;">The Festival team look forward to seeing you all from 11<sup>th</sup> to 17<sup>th</sup> June for 7 days dedicated to animation film.</p> <p style="margin-top: 20px; text-align: center; font-size: 18px;">Stay tuned, <strong>accreditations will be going on sale soon!</strong></p> Mon, 30 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Annecy Festival 2022: A Significant Economic Impact https://www.annecy.org/news:a2791 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2791 CITIA, organiser of the International Animation Film Festival and its Market, the Mifa, this morning revealed the Annecy Festival 2022 edition’s economic impact.<br /> The economic benefits for the local community are considerable.<br /><p>Furthermore, if we compare local subsidies allocated to the event with its economic impact, we are witnessing a significant leverage effect!</p> <p style="margin-top: 30px;"><strong>AS A REMINDER, ANNECY 2022 IS:</strong></p> <ul> <li>38 full time staff and over 50  collaborators as reinforcements</li> <li>403 volunteers</li> <li><strong>13,248 badgeholders</strong> of which <strong>11,800 non-local badgeholders</strong></li> <li><strong>106 countries represented, 47% foreign badgeholders</strong></li> <li>Almost 3,000 companies present </li> <li>6 days</li> <li>300 film screenings</li> <li>115,000 admissions<strong><br /></strong></li> </ul> <p style="margin-top: 30px;"><strong>WHY DO A STUDY LIKE THIS?</strong></p> <p>Nowadays, many events, whether they are cultural or sporting, contribute to the economic development of the regions where they are organised. <br /><em>"We wanted to carry out a study using a robust methodology (the last dates back to 2018) to precisely measure the Annecy International Animation Film Festival’s economic impact. The idea was to have indicators for CITIA and its partners in order to demonstrate that a cultural event also generates economic spin-offs. Using a unified method also makes it possible to compare it with other events. Lastly, the information collected is also useful to investors, notably to justify their interventions."</em><br /><strong>Dominique Puthod</strong>, Chairman of CITIA</p> <p style="margin-top: 30px;"><strong>THE STUDY AND SURVEY</strong></p> <p>They were supervised by Dominique Puthod, Chairman of CITIA and lecturer at Savoie Mont Blanc University, using the <strong>Directorate-General for Enterprise’s (DGE) method as its reference framework. This particular method makes it possible to analyse an event’s short-term economic impact.</strong> A survey was carried out at the end of the event’s last edition to analyse the participants’ spending. 3,048 people answered the survey (out of the 11,800 non-local attendees). This ensures an accurate result and representative sample of the different types of badgeholders (Festival, Mifa, Students, etc.).</p> <p style="margin-top: 30px;"><strong>ECONOMIC IMPACT</strong></p> <p>The participants’ spending, paired with the organiser CITIA’s expenditure, <strong>revealed a short-term economic impact of €22,80 M</strong>.</p> <p>A significant leverage effect on the local community because:</p> <ul> <li><strong>1 euro</strong> invested by the Town Hall generates <strong>€50.80 </strong>within the region</li> <li><strong>1 euro</strong> of public funding generates <strong>€11.90</strong> within the region</li> </ul> <br /> <p>Presentation, methodology and figures (in French only)</p> <p><a class="btn btn1" title="Découvrez les retombées économiques du Festival d'Annecy 2022" href="https://www.annecyfestival.com/resources/download.php?id=103678" target="_blank"><span>More info</span></a></p> Tue, 17 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Hélène Tanguay has Died https://www.annecy.org/news:a2790 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2790 It is with deep sadness that the Annecy Festival team has learned of the death of Hélène Tanguay, who was involved in the animation industry for over 37 years.<br /><br /><p><strong>Hélène Tanguay</strong>, born in Montréal, joined the NFB (National Film Board of Canada) in 1970 and soon afterwards held a position in the Bureau des festivals. In 1979, she was elected to the ASIFA Canada’s Board of Directors where she held various positions across 13 years. For 6 years she was the Canadian delegate at the ASIFA International Council. She also participated as a jury member at prestigious festivals (Espinho, Hiroshima, and Annecy). In recognition of her exceptional contribution to the animation community and to honour her departure from the NFB, the Ottawa International Animation Festival awarded Hélène Tanguay the title of Honorary President for its 2007 edition.</p> <p>Hélène Tanguay had a special relationship with the Annecy International Animation Film Festival having attended <strong>every year since 1975, until 2008, when she was jury member for the short films category</strong>.</p> <p>Retired since 2007, she was the finest ambassador the NFB ever had. She was charming, funny, playful, colourful, and strong willed. She loved animation, films, directors, Annecy and other festivals, and in return she too was much loved and appreciated worldwide.</p> <p>In early retirement she continued to work alongside Frédéric Back in his workshop for several years until his death at the end of 2013. Even though she was already ill we had the pleasure of seeing her again at Annecy in 2017, because nothing gave her more pleasure than being at a festival with friends.</p> <p>The Annecy Festival team joins her loved ones and her extensive animation family in paying tribute to the memory of such an incredible woman. </p> Tue, 10 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Happy New Year 2023! https://www.annecy.org/news:a2789 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2789 The CITIA Team Wishes You All the Best for 2023.<br /><p><strong>¡FELIZ AÑO NUEVO!</strong></p> <p>With a tribute to Mexico, whose animation will be taking centre stage in the next edition of the Annecy Festival, and its iconic artists, <strong>CITIA wishes you all the very best for the New Year!</strong></p> <p><strong>Among all the creations</strong> produced by the 3rd year students at the École des nouvelles images (ENSI), whom we have been collaborating with for several years, discover our official New Year’s greeting card that pays tribute to the Mexican graffiti artist <strong>Farid Rueda</strong>.</p> <div class="blc_iframe suggestions"><img class="blc_iframe_img" src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhEAAJAIAAAP///wAAACH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAAQAAkAAAIKhI+py+0Po5yUFQA7" alt="" /> <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ar1NBvC2-5Y" width="390" height="219"></iframe></div> <p>Feel free to look at them all and choose your favourite!<br /><strong>> <a title="Regardez les cartes de voeux 2023 du Festival d'Annecy" href="https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLs3Yp0_HhfXU4CTI78kEnD7jiDLdqLN1_" target="_blank">See all the greeting cards</a></strong></p> <p style="margin-top: 30px;">A festive titbit of what awaits you from <strong>11<sup>th</sup> to 17<sup>th</sup> June 2023</strong> – given that the Annecy Festival will start on Sunday for <strong>7 days dedicated to animation film!</strong></p> Thu, 05 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0100 Opening Sunday 11th June: One Day more for more Animation Film! https://www.annecy.org/news:a2788 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2788 In 2023, the Festival will start on Sunday 11<sup>th</sup> June to host 7 days dedicated to animation film!<br /> Following an exceptional 2022 edition, and in view of how dense this year’s offer is becoming, CITIA’s management decided to open the Festival as early as Sunday.<br /><p>For the first time in its history, the Annecy International Animation Film Festival will open on Sunday evening, with its traditional Opening Ceremony held in the Bonlieu Scène nationale's Grande salle. There will even be a few screenings in the afternoon.</p> <p><strong>Therefore, Annecy 2023 will be held from 11<sup>th</sup> to 17<sup>th</sup> June.</strong></p> <p><strong>Mickaël Marin</strong>, CEO of CITIA, puts his decision down to global animation’s tremendous growth: <em>“Each year, the number of festivalgoers is higher, the content is increasingly varied and comes from all walks of life, subsequently we find ourselves too restricted by the Festival’s historical format. Bringing the opening day forward should enable us to improve everyone’s experience and put the Opening Ceremony in the spotlight to increase its prestige in the week’s overall programming.”</em></p> <p>Artistic Director, <strong>Marcel Jean</strong>, adds: <em>"In recent years, the programming has become increasingly dense. By moving the Opening Ceremony to Sunday, we are re-establishing the agenda so that Monday becomes a fully-fledged Festival day. Also, a few screenings will enable festivalgoers to begin discovering the programme on Sunday.<br />It’s only December yet we already know that the programme will satisfy the most critical audiences. Quality and diversity have already made the cut, both with the major studios and the independent studios alike."</em></p> <p>And as <a class="link-underline" title="Watch the video with Guillermo del Toro" href="https://youtu.be/SuW3TIEuayw" target="_blank">Guillermo del Toro</a> has announced, Mexican animation will be in the spotlight!</p> <p style="margin-top: 30px; font-size: 18px;">The Mifa is also evolving!</p> <p><strong>To respond to emerging challenges, the International Animation Film Market is restructuring itself</strong> for professionals and young talents around <strong>3 offers and 3 areas, one of which is new!</strong></p> <ul> <li><strong>Stands and pavilions</strong> in the <strong>Exhibition Area</strong>.</li> <li><strong>Industry content</strong> (conferences, discussion panels, and meetings) at the <strong>Impérial Palace</strong> and at <strong>La Volière</strong>.</li> <li>Talents (training, recruitment, etc.) in a new dedicated area: <strong>Le Campus</strong>. <br />This one in particular will be hosting the <strong>Mifa Campus</strong>, which will no longer be held on one day but from Tuesday to Friday like the rest of the Mifa.</li> </ul> <p style="text-align: center;"><strong>See you from 13<sup>th</sup> to 16<sup>th</sup> June for the Mifa 2023</strong></p> <p style="text-align: center; margin-top: 30px; font-size: 18px;">We can’t wait to see you at this new edition of the Annecy Festival<br />from Sunday 11<sup>th</sup> to Saturday 17<sup>th</sup> June 2023.</p> Tue, 13 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0100 Residency: The Winning Projects https://www.annecy.org/news:a2784 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2784 From 3<sup>rd</sup> April to 30<sup>th</sup> June 2023, the Annecy Festival Residency will host new artists who will work on the graphic development of their animation feature films.<br /><p>Right at the heart of the Papeteries – Image Factory, the Annecy Festival Residency 2023 winners will each benefit from a suitable workspace, a tailor-made mentor and assistance from the CITIA teams.</p> <p>In response to the call for projects, <strong>33 projects were received</strong> this summer from all 4 corners of the world (Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Croatia, Spain, France, Italy, New Zealand, Peru, and United Kingdom), 14 of which were led by women, 15 by men and 4 by man/woman duos.</p> <p>From this geographic diversity and the array of genres and styles, the selection committee, composed of <strong>Damien Brunner</strong> (Producer, Folivari), <strong>Laurence Petit</strong> (Distributor, Haut et Court), <strong>Aurel</strong> (Artist, Director) and <strong>Jean-Christophe Roger</strong> (Director), chose the following:</p> <ul> <li><em><strong>Le Dernier des Cailloux</strong></em> by Caroline Cherrier (France – Tant Mieux Prod)</li> <li><em><strong>Shadow Work</strong></em> by Areito Echevarria and Raqi Syed (New Zealand)</li> <li><em><strong>The Bird Kingdom</strong></em> (<em>O Reino dos Pássaros</em>) by Wesley Rodrigues (Brazil/France – Lupa Filmes, Sacrebleu Productions) </li> </ul> <p>Congratulations to the directors whose biographies and feature film synopses are available on the special <a class="link-underline" title="More info about Annecy Festival Residency" href="https://www.annecy.org/annecy-festival-residency" target="_blank"><strong>Annecy Festival Residency 2023</strong></a> web page.</p> <p>See you in June at the Mifa to meet these winners and discover each project’s graphic evolutions, and maybe even join their adventure!
