French animation out in force in Canada

With 14 French productions selected, the French Touch had a starring role at the sixteenth edition of the Sommets du cinéma d'animation.

From November 22 through 26, Montreal welcomed the sixteenth edition of the Sommets du cinéma d’animation. Over five days, projections, discussions, workshops, and exhibitions took place during the Quebec event.

French works usually have a strong presence, which the 2017 program confirmed once again. This year, fourteen French productions were selected for the International Competition.

Alongside the latest works by directors who have won awards such as Céline Devaux (You Will Be Fine, winner of the Best Short Film Award in the Venice Horizon section at the 2017 Venice International Film Festival ) and Chloé Mazlo (Liarmonds), we also find two productions that garnered attention at the latest Toronto International Film FestivalCharles and The Death, Dad & Son.

Initially conceived to facilitate encounters between artists and the public, the event has progressively taken on an important role and became competitive in 2011. It is particularly renowned for its International Competition for very short films, dedicated to productions lasting no longer than three minutes.
