More than ever we need to support creation and culture. It is for our common good.</em>"</p> <p>It’s official, in April 2021, CITIA will welcome its first 3 residents to the Papeteries – Image Factory!<br /> Along with the support from the Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the Haute-Savoie Department, the CNC and France Télévisions, the <strong>Annecy International Animation Film Festival</strong> will assist creation by setting up a residency for graphic development in animated feature films.<br /> With international positioning, top-of-the-range mentoring and a unique showcase on the professional world of animation, the <strong>Annecy Festival Residency</strong> offers a 3-month time capsule (5<sup>th</sup> April to 27<sup>th</sup> June 2021), focused on graphic reflection and evolution. The ideal deflection in the life of a work.</p> <p>For more info about Annecy Festival Residency, <a title="More info about the Annecy Festival Residency" href="https://www.annecy.org/resources/pdf/Annecy_Festival_Residency.pdf" target="_blank"><strong>download the brochure</strong></a></p> <p><strong>Calendar:</strong><br /> Registrations open: 11<sup>th</sup> June 2020<br /> Registration deadline: 30<sup>th</sup> August 2020<br /> Announcement of the selection: beginning of October 2020<br /> Residency: 5<sup>th</sup> April to 27th June 2021</p> <p>From today and until 30<sup>th</sup> August, project leaders can send in their applications. The selection will be announced at the beginning of October 2020.<br /> As signatory to the 50/50 Charter CITIA pays particular attention to respecting parity.<br />        <br /></p> <p>"<em>The Region is proud to be associated with the Annecy Festival’s launch of a new residency project, which fits perfectly in the Region’s strategy developed around the four areas of expertise in film. The current health crisis has made it clear to us that it is vital to continue to create and enable young talents to express themselves, via this new residency project, but also via this year’s digital edition of the Festival. In these uncertain times it is indispensable to safeguard the irreplaceable link with the works and artists.</em>"<br /> <strong>Laurent Wauquiez</strong>, Chairman of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region</p> <p>"<em>Haute-Savoie is the land of animation film, and the Department has backed the dynamics of this sector for over 40 years: its Audiovisual Production Support Fund has already assisted almost 40 works to see the light of day. So, it is perfectly natural that it supports the new project helmed by CITIA to welcome artists to our territory. Creation, production, moving image education, youth training, international broadcasting and now artist residencies: Haute-Savoie supports all stages and all those concerned within animation film.<br /> Over time this has become one of our territory’s emblems. The resources provided by the Department are massive and testify to a long-lasting commitment. The health crisis that we are currently traversing only highlights the absolute necessity of this investment in favour of quality artistic and cinematographic content</em>."<br /> <strong>Christian Monteil</strong>, Chairman of the Haute-Savoie Department</p> <p>"<em>Write, think, hesitate, and take your time, this is how we need to bring forth the beginnings of a creative project! France Télévisions is enthusiastically involved in the Annecy Festival’s residency project, this will be the opportunity for our group to meet new artists and possibly initiate new feature film projects that are always "long-term journeys" for the years to come. More than ever we are supporting French creation and even more specifically the animation sector. Encouraging and meeting new talents should remain essential in the creative cycle.</em>"<br /> <strong>Cécile Négrier</strong>, Head of France 3 Cinéma, and <strong>Tiphaine de Raguenel</strong>, Head of Youth Audiences and Animation</p> Tue, 21 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0200 A Digital Edition that Seduced Animation Professionals and Enthusiasts! https://www.annecy.org/news:a2617 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2617 With an abundant offer, numerous unreleased works, more than 200 films, 32 meetings and 40 Mifa events, the challenge was met!

LFA is proud to announce the launch of a talent search and mentoring program focused on animation projects which will provide access to an important professional network for those who do not normally have access to industry leaders and creators.</p> <p>This innovative program will take place on two continents: France and, in coordination with Annecy’s 2021 focus, also on the African (francophone) continent including a talent search and mentoring programme specifically aimed at emerging female talent.</p> <p>LFA’s objective is to identify and support talent, helping selected women to definine, nurture and produce animated productions.
