Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes services and offers


Annecy International Animated Film Festival

Specialised in animated films, shorts, medium and feature length. Annecy is the place for discovering, sharing, organizing meetings, finding partners, the place where animation is made, develops, innovates and holds people`s attention.
The Mifa will greet you on 15th to 30th June with an entire online programme. The key words of this very unique edition will be exchanges, discoveries, meetings, networking and of course, negotiations and acquisitions!



Annecy continues its international roll-out

Exportable skill-sets and expertise serving animation: Annecy, a global "brand"!

The Annecy brand exported to the four corners of the earth

Following Annecy Goes to Cannes and Animation Is Film, and with a future event planned for South Korea in 2019, Annecy continues to reach worldwide and export its expertise.



"All these steps are essential in our strategy for global expansion and enable us to promote films and artists from around the world to ever-increasing audiences." Patrick Eveno


South Africa, Argentina, Thailand… A team that’s tuned into territories and their needs

These actions are developed around several key points:

Accompanying emerging movie fields:

On the agenda for these international forays: touring universities and animation studios, and meeting with local institutional representatives as well as with the sector’s professional entities in order to sketch out the most encompassing picture of things and analyze the territory’s context and dynamic potential.

The goal is also to accompany an entire sector in its volition to cooperate internationally, either through co-productions or else student exchanges.

This is why CITIA’s next trip, to Singapore, will include the École Émile Cohl and the Atelier de Sèvres in the aim of exploring various schools and universities, setting up future joint projects which may develop into exchanges, perhaps even leading to the opening of a satellite school in the country.



Accompanying talents:

As part of the Animation du Monde structure, Annecy continues to assist creative talents via workshops in selected countries (storytelling, storyboard and pitches, etc.). At the outcome of these workshops, winners are announced who will automatically participate in the 2018 Mifa Animation du Monde pitch sessions. This year, Africa and the Andean nations will benefit from this opportunity.

Partnering with major markets:

>>> Continuation of our cooperation with Ventana Sur to spot and then bolster South American animation.
For more information

>>> 1st joint endeavor with DISCOP, the African continent’s Number One audiovisual market. This year the Annecy International Animation Film Festival and its Market (Mifa), the DISCOP Markets and the African Animation Network (AAN) have partnered to launch a call for projects for a Pan-African animation pitch contest.

Best of Annecy

It should likewise be remembered that the Annecy International Animated Film Festival radiates throughout the world thanks to the Best of Annecy 2017 program which condenses a selection of prize-winning short films from last year’s festival with short opening sequences crafted by the students of GOBELINS, l’école de l’image.

The Best Of also encompasses specific programming for younger viewers: Best of Annecy Kids. This includes 10 funny and poetic short films, for children 5 and over, even if the younger ones will love them too!

From Georgia, moving on down through Mexico, Clermont-Ferrand, Geneva, Tahiti, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Jerusalem, Peno (Peru), Montreal and on to Cape Town and Buenos Aires: Annecy is circling the globe!
