4.30 to 6 pm: 16h30-18h UniFrance Discussion Series: "Success strategies to promote French animation films abroad"
France is Europe's leading producer of animated films and the third largest in the world. Its films combine world-renowned know-how with the visions of directors celebrated at festivals. But behind the recognition of this "French Touch" lies a great diversity and richness of cinematic proposals. So what are the different strategies for promoting French animated films abroad? What are the levers mobilized by producers, exporters, distributors, and platforms to make these films known and to increase their distribution? How can we highlight directors, of both short and feature-length films, at the different stages in the life of their film? A panel composed of recognized foreign and French professionals will provide answers to these questions.
