In addition to the changes that were successfully implemented last year and continued this year (a 4-day Market, from 12th to 15th June, instead of a 3-day Market that was in place until 2016; another extension of the areas, thus increasing the surface area of the Market to more than 7,200m2; new VR areas; the second summit with Women in Animation and Les Femmes s’Animent; meetings between talented individuals, students and professionals at the Mifa Campus…), new measures were added: Market Screenings, Meet the Composers, Shoot the Book Anim’ and Demo Sessions. Each of these events has received a number of people that exceeded what we had supposed and helps us to start imagining a 2019 Mifa that can fulfil expectations in an even better way</em>."</p> <p><strong>Mickaël Marin</strong><br />CITIA Managing Director, Head of Economic Development & Mifa</p> <h2 style="font-size: 20px; font-weight: normal; margin: 10px 0px 15px; padding: 0px; color: #adcb0b;">11 years of continuous growth</h2> <p><strong>3,800</strong> badgeholders, +22% compared to 2017<br /><strong>1 736</strong> companies in attendance + 20 % compared to 2017<br /><strong>490</strong> buyers, distributors and investors + 12 % compared to 2017</p> <p><strong>75 countries</strong> represented on a meeting surface that has increased this year to 7,200m², a delegation of 80 people from Brazil, the animation of which is being honoured, the 1st involvement of Cameroon, Bolivia, Ecuador, Peru, Switzerland, Hungary and Georgia.</p> <p><strong>A "Creative Europe MEDIA" Umbrella for the first time.</strong><br />   <br /></p> <h2 style="font-size: 20px; font-weight: normal; margin: 10px 0px 15px; padding: 0px; color: #adcb0b;">Extremely popular recruitment sessions</h2> <p><img title="Recrutement Mifa – Photo : K.

These new events offered the opportunity for producers, distributors and sales representatives to present their latest productions to professionals.</p> <p style="padding-bottom: 7px;"><strong>Meet the Composers</strong><br />As music is one of the themes honoured during the 2018 Annecy Festival, the Market joined forces with the Sacem to organise B2B Meet the Composers events. They were one-on-one meetings aiming to encourage discussions between composers and directors.</p> <p style="padding-bottom: 7px;"><strong>Shoot the Book Anim’</strong><br />This year, the Mifa teamed up with <strong>the SCELF</strong> (<strong>Société civile des éditeurs de langue française</strong>), <strong>Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Cinéma</strong> and l’<strong>Institut français</strong> to organise Shoot the Book Anim’, and to promote books that are likely to be adapted into animated films. Editors were able to pitch their work to an audience of animation professionals.</p> <p style="padding-bottom: 7px;"><strong>Demo Sessions</strong><br />The Mifa has been putting more of an emphasis on the latest animation technology in Demo Sessions.
