A rich and diverse selection of French films at the 2020 Annecy Film Festival

The 2020 edition of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival will be held from June 15 through 30 entirely online due to the current public health situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The festival's Official Selection was announced on May 18, and features three French feature films and over twenty French shorts.

Two of the three feature films co-produced by France in the Official Competition are majority-French productions: Little Vampire, directed by Joann Sfar, whose film The Rabbi's cat was presented at Annecy in 2011 and whose offering this year is another screen adaptation of his comic books. Rémi Chayé also returns to Annecy with Calamity, after presenting his debut feature Long Way North in 2015, which won the Audience Award.

In the short film sections, it is worth highlighting that four of the seven VR works presented are French productions, including Saturnism, the latest offering from Mihai Grecu, whose film The Reflection of Power traveled widely on the international film festival circuit and earned a Special Mention from the Jury at Annecy in 2016.

As is the case each year, and despite the highly unusual circumstances in which this year's festival is held, UniFrance will have a strong presence at the event in order to accompany the screening of French films, particularly at the MIFA (Animation Film Market). In this way, UniFrance will be working to enhance the visibility of all of the French productions showcased at this year's festival.
