French films and UniFrance at the Annecy Film Festival

UniFrance will be present at the upcoming Annecy International Animation Film Festival (June 11-16) for the duration of the event. For the second time this year, UniFrance, the CNC, and Film France will be grouped together under a common banner at the Annecy International Animated Film Market (MIFA).

One feature film in the Official Competition, three others featured in the Special Screenings, around 26 short films and nine VR works presented: this is the latest crop of French films that will be showcased at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in June, an event that will once again demonstrate the great vitality of the French animation sector.

Alongside internationally recognized filmmakers such as Michel Ocelot (whose new opus Dilili à Paris will open the festival), Sébastien Laudenbach (Vibrato), Boris Labbé (The Fall), Inès Sedan (Love He Said) Alain Gagnol, and Jean-Loup Felicioli (The Cat's Regret), a whole new wave of talent will be taking part in the Official Competition, with women directors accounting for almost one half of these emerging filmmakers. The selection also highlights the profusion of animation techniques being explored at this time (including stop motion, 3D animation, and hand drawing).

The 2018 edition of the Annecy Film Festival will also be marked by the added importance given to the section dedicated to immersive works. Side by side with North American productions by big names such as Felix & Paul and Google, France will be well-represented by the company Atlas V, with their film BattleScar, which was highly-acclaimed at Sundance and Tribeca. French audiences will also have the opportunity to step into the shoes of Lupe (aka Rosario Dawson) and take part in the creation of her punk band. Other prestigious French productions will also be presented, including I Saw the Future and PLANET ∞, as well as two new productions from On Entertainment (Le Petit Prince and Playmobil).

From June 11 to 16, UniFrance teams will be taking shifts to meet with international professionals. Some of the highlights of this week-long event:

  • On Wednesday, June 13, UniFrance will host the customary breakfast event for short film industry professionals in conjunction with our colleagues at the Sodec, SWISS FILMS and Wallonie-Bruxelles Images, and in partnership with TitraFilm. Representatives from the films in the Official Competition will be present, as well as a delegation from Brazil (which is this year's country of honor at the MIFA). For reservations, please contact benoit.blanchard@unifrance.org.

  • At the end of the breakfast event, the new winner of the UniFrance Export Award will be announced.

  • On Thursday, June 14, UniFrance will join in with the "Brazilian Party" organized by our partner TitraFilm (invitation only).
