Over the course of its 60 years, the Annecy Festival has established itself as a global event dedicated to animation, bringing together the most esteemed professionals from the sector to celebrate animation’s creative and diverse styles and techniques.
The International Animation Film Market is the ultimate event in this sector. It enables meetings between authors, creators, and directors, with producers, distributors, and buyers, to contribute to this industry’s development.
The Annecy Festival Residency aims to support authors and their creations. Supervised by illustrious animation mentors, the project leaders of the three selected feature films cultivate their work’s graphic development.
"Out of all my memories of the Annecy Festival, the best ones are when I came when I was a student. You come across hundreds of different nationalities, but we all speak the same language."
Arthur de Pins
"I met the producer of my first short film at Annecy, and we all know that there aren’t other films without a first film."
"I return every year like an excited child going back to summer camp. And each time I say to you 'don’t change a thing', and each year you change something and it’s even better than before."
Marc du Pontavice
"I will never forget the support and kindness about me and my projects at Annecy this last decade. I appreciate it."
