Despite being in the middle of shooting his next film The Phoenician Scheme, filmmaker Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The French Dispatch) will do us the great honour of coming to Annecy to talk about animation film at this year’s International Animation Film Festival, which will be held on 9th to 15th June 2024.
This year, the International Animation Film Festival will pay tribute to Portuguese animation. There will also be a DANCE theme, a new non-competitive section ANNECY PRESENTS in the programme, as well as offering a special venue for fusing animation, immersive creations and gaming in one XR&GAMES area.
While the AniMela Festival was inaugurating its 1st ever edition, the International Mifa Campus was hosting its "Talents" workshop for five lucky candidates, all winners of the call for applicants launched late last year.
After Israel and Nigeria, the 3rd Mifa Campus International – Production was held in Madagascar from 21st to 24th November 2023.
The Annecy Festival Residency will hold its 4th edition from 5th April to 28th June 2024 and host 3 new artists in the Papeteries – Image Factory to work on the visual identity of their animation feature films.
