Take a breath of fresh air and don't miss out on the Disney Art Challenge, inspired by "The Incredibles" film, on the railings of the prefecture!
Created in 2013, the Disney Art Challenge aims to unveil the talent and creativity of French students with a background in graphic arts and animated images to the wider public. Nearly 25 schools in the Réseau de Cinéma d'Animation (RECA), in partnership with Art Ludique-Le Musée, are taking part in the challenge.
For the sixth Disney Art Challenge, students worked on the theme of "daily life of a family of superheroes", inspired by Pixar Studios' new film The Incredibles 2. Their work will be exhibited on the railings of the Haute-Savoie prefecture in Annecy throughout the Festival. A unique level of visibility will allow festival attendees to discover the extent of the talent among these budding young animators!
This year, 10 works have been selected by a jury made up of Jean-François Camilleri, President of The Walt Disney Company France and Benelux, Jean-Jacques Launier, founder of Art Ludique-Le-Musée, Tony Sandoval, scriptwriter and artist (Doomboy, Futura nostalgia), Aleksi Briclot, author and artist (Spawn), Davy Mourier author and artist (La Petite Mort), Thomas Hugues, RTL journalist and comic book fan, and Amélie Poirier, the 2017 prizewinner.
The winners will be awarded their prizes by the director and creator of the The Incredibles films, Brad Bird, on Friday 15thJune at 10:30 am, in the first part of the event screening dedicated to the first footage of Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2.
