"The Annecy International Animation Film Festival and Market are excited to be working together with Variety and GKIDS. Animation Is Film is a wonderful opportunity to radiate animation and all its diversity in the heart of Hollywood and is a very important step in our expansion abroad. The festival is another occasion, following Annecy Goes to Cannes and before the Annecy Asia International Animated Film Festival in Seoul, to promote films and artists from all over the world to an even wider audience."  Patrick Eveno, CITIA CEO

   

ANIMATION IS FILM aims to fill a gap in the market by establishing the first world class animation festival in the US, with its home in the world capital of filmmaking.  The Festival embraces the highest aspirations of animation as a cinematic art form on par with live action filmmaking and will be vocal advocate for filmmakers who push the boundaries of their work to the fullest range of expression that the medium is capable of.
