Institut français partner of the Annecy Animated Film Festival

Assisting a world animated film project, presented in June 2016, and the launch of French short films; these are the two chapters of the Cinéma français et Cinémas du Monde partnership signed with the Annecy Animated Film Festival.
The Institut français has committed to a dual partnership with the Annecy International Animated Film Festival/Cité de l’image en mouvement with the international distribution of a ‘‘Best of’’ including French short films presented over the past years and implementation of a partnership between the festival market, the Fabrique à Histoires and the Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde (World Cinema Fabrique).
 
 

French short films program

To be presented within the scope of the Animated Film Festival in October 2016, the ‘‘Annecy Animated Film Festival – Best of’’ will include a selection of films for a young public and a selection of best French short films for adults to be presented at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, set up in 1956, now an international reference in animated cinema. In the Festival’s June 2016 edition, a tribute was paid to France for its animated films, for their diversity, energy and ambition.
 
 

International film animation

 
Presented at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in June 2016, for the MIFA (Annecy Festival International Market) pitch session, the project for the animated film, Nuna: Le dernier mythe du Wamani, by Peruvian filmmaker Jimmy Carhuas will be assisted by the Fabrique à Histoires and the Fabrique des Cinémas du Monde (World Cinema Fabrique).
 
This assistance includes participation, in May 2017, in the World Cinema Fabrique, a professional program of the Institut français that falls within the scope of the Cannes Film Festival, supporting budding young creation from Southern countries on the international market. This participation follows a 4- to 8-week creation & development residency at the Fabrique à Histoires in the Cévennes National Park.
 
Nuna: Le dernier mythe du Wamani is the first film to benefit from this assistance, stemming from a partnership between the Annecy Festival International Market, the Fabrique à Histoires and the Institut français.
