Three experts will visualise the animation of tomorrow.

Based on her experience at STUDIOCANAL, Françoise Guyonnet will talk about the place animation holds in Europe, the development of a new film genre that is a cross between animation and live action, adapting brands or famous characters into feature films and guiding original creations through brand content.

Producer and Consultant, Jinko Gotoh has over 15 animated features under her belt, including "The Little Prince". There have been a lot of changes over the past 50 years and animation is now an exploding global industry. Now is the time to empower all the untapped talent, especially women.

The third perspective comes from Lisa Henson, daughter of Jim, creator of "The Muppet Show",and CEO of The Jim Henson Company.
