"En sortant de l’école" diffusé sur France 3

18th Mar 2014

  'En sortant de l’école' to be broadcast on France 3 

CITIA, partner of the project En sortant de l’école, is proud to announce that it will be broadcast, from Sunday 23rd March on France 3.

France Télévisions and Tant Mieux Prod have chosen to honour poetry on the occasion of the Printemps des Poètes (Springtime of Poets), with a collection of short animation films, En sortant de l’école (Leaving School), the first season being dedicated to Jacques Prévert.

Fifteen young French animation school graduates were selected to work on thirteen poems by Jacques Prévert and to adapt them into short films. Pierre Siracusa, managing director of animation for France Télévisions, considers these shorts as "formal and imaginary variations that show the richness of these young creators and the excellence of our animation schools."

These thirteen films call on numerous animation techniques and were all produced in the Rhône-Alpes region, at the Cartoucherie of Bourg-lès-Valence, at Pôle PIXEL of Villeurbanne and at the studio Caribara in Annecy. They were aided by regional centres of excellence (the Cartoucherie, the Pôle PIXEL and CITIA) and financially supported by local governements (Agglomeration of Valence Romans South Rhône-Alpes, Department of Haute-Savoie, Rhône-Alpes Region).

CITIA invites you to tune in to France 3 on 23rd March, and Wednesdays at 10:30 am at Ludo to discover these short films!

You can find all the information about the project and the filmmakers on the site En sortant de l’école (in French only).
