He died on 17<sup>th</sup> November.<br />Born on 3<sup>rd</sup> November 1937 in Sainte-Croix, in the Vaud canton in Switzerland, as a teenager Bruno Edera already filmed his first amateur productions before founding two film clubs in his hometown and in La Chaux-de-Fonds.<br /><br /> <div>He began his career at Paillard-Bolex producing cinematographic equipment as a machine draftsman. Later, his passion for animation permitted him to join <strong>Télévision Suisse Romande</strong> (TSR), first as an expert collaborator in this field, then in charge of animation film co-productions, and finally, until he retired, as producer of television programmes such as <em>Sauce cartoon</em> or <em>A comme animation</em>.</div> <br /> <div>From 1968, at a time when animation was still fairly unknown in his country, and when people pursued it in a more self-taught, hand-crafted and solitary manner, he has the bright idea of getting animators, directors, technicians and producers together to share their experiences. With Nag and Gisèle Ansorge, Georges Schwizgebel, Claude Luyet and Daniel Suter, he establishes the <a href="https://swissanimation.ch/" target="_blank"><strong>Swiss Animation Film Group</strong></a> (GSFA), and the very first meeting takes place in his kitchen at home in Onex.<br />In 2020, this section of the ASIFA (International Animation Film Association) will gather together around 200 Swiss professionals.</div> <br /><br /><br /> <div>                                           <img src="https://www.citia.org/resources/images/c/bruno-edera_livre1.jpg" alt="" width="190" height="190" /> <img style="vertical-align: middle;" title=" " src="https://www.citia.org/resources/images/c/bruno-edera_livre2.jpg" alt="" width="190" height="190" />    </div> <br /><br />Bruno takes part in many festivals throughout his career. Each of them <a href="https://www.awn.com/mag/issue1.10/articles/edera.fr1.10.html" target="_blank"><em>"plays an important role in his activity"</em></a>, providing the opportunity to meet Russian, Polish or Czech creators, when everyone is still only talking about American productions.<br />The event that influences him the most, in the early 1960s, is the <strong>Annecy Festival</strong> (that at the time is known as Journées internationales du cinéma d’animation, JICA). He becomes a member of the board of directors of the organising structure, which is called the Centre international du cinéma d’animation (CICA), and subsequently remains a very dear friend of the event. <br /><br /><strong>A true animation film archive</strong>, Bruno Edera publishes many articles in specialist magazines, as well as the works, <em>Full Length Animated Feature Films</em> (1977) and <em>Histoire du cinéma suisse d’animation</em> (1978). With <em>À la découverte d'un cinéma méconnu : Le Cinéma d'animation africain</em> (in collaboration with the Annecy Festival, 1993), he is the author of one of the very first publications on the subject. <br />He would’ve been thrilled to learn that Annecy 2021 was going to pay tribute to animation from this continent. <br /><br />In 1988, in recognition of his full career, he is presented the <strong>Raoul Servais Award</strong>.<br /><br />In his later years, an illness slowly erases Bruno Edera’s memory and his life-long journey and Covid takes him at the age of 83. <br /><br /><strong>For more information:</strong><br /> <ul> <li>The <a href="https://swissanimation.ch/fr/news/bruno-edera-1937-2020/" target="_blank">tribute</a> from his friends, Georges Schwizgebel and Claude Luyet <em>(French only)</em></li> <li>TV Onex replays a 2019 <a href="https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x7xq7ak" target="_blank">documentary</a> dedicated to the GSFA's 50<sup>th</sup> anniversary <em>(French only)</em></li> </ul> Wed, 02 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0100 https://www.annecy.org/news:a2632 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2632 <br /> Tue, 01 Dec 2020 00:00:00 +0100 Annecy Festival Residency: The 3 Winning Projects https://www.annecy.org/news:a2631 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2631 CITIA reveals the 3 projects that will inaugurate the 2021 artists’ residency dedicated to animation feature film.<br /><div>Last June, CITIA, the organisers of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, announced the creation of the arts residency "<strong>Graphic development for animation feature film</strong>" with backing from the <a title="See the website" href="https://www.auvergnerhonealpes.fr/" target="_blank">Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes</a>, <a title="See the website" href="https://www.hautesavoie.fr/" target="_blank">Département de la Haute-Savoie</a>, the<a title="See the website" href="https://www.cnc.fr/" target="_blank"> CNC</a> and <a title="See the website" href="https://www.francetelevisions.fr/" target="_blank">France Télévisions</a> – this is a new milestone in the shared history between the Annecy region and animation film.</div> <br /> <div>During the summer, <strong>32 projects</strong> were submitted,<strong> from 17 countries</strong>: France, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Georgia, Colombia, Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, Hungary, India, Dominican Republic, Serbia, China, Turkey, Mexico, and the Philippines. Because the three-month residency for graphic treatment is intended to enrich the narrative, the maturity of the script was one of the criteria for the selection process.</div> <br /> <div>A wide range of genres were represented, from mainstream projects to projects from more independent authors. An eclecticism that drew passionate discussions between the selection committee members: <strong>Sara Wikler</strong> (Artistic Film Producer, Blue Spirit, Script Consultant), <strong>Damien Brunner </strong>(Producer, Folivari), <strong>Éléa Gobbé-Mévellec</strong> (Director), <strong>Marc Bonny</strong> (Distributor) and <strong>Pierre Siracusa</strong> (Director of the Animation and Young Audiences' Unit, France Télévisions).</div> <br /> <h2>The 3 winning projects</h2> <div><em><strong>- Piece </strong></em>by Alan Holly (Ireland), a modern animated drama about societal pressures and anxieties and their impact on young people. The project follows seven adolescents who question themselves and the world around them.</div> <br /> <div><em><strong>- Heirloom </strong></em>by Upamanyu Bhattacharyya (India), a family tale that follows the life and rise of the young Solal over almost fifty years and pays tribute to centuries of textile traditions in India.</div> <br /> <div><em><strong>- Le Cœur à danser</strong></em> by Pierre Le Couviour and Amine El Ouarti (France), a fictional story, set in Brittany, about a young girl who takes it upon herself to organise a big party to celebrate the village’s men returning from the war.

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.

Mifa meetings, and discussions with leading experts from all over the world.</p> <p>Yet, Annecy took the challenge head on by reinventing and offering an alternative to a cancellation, which for us was inconceivable.</p> <p style="font-size: 16px; text-align: center; margin-top: 30px; margin-bottom: 30px;"><strong>THANK YOU to everyone for being there!</strong></p> <h2>The digital edition in figures</h2> <p class="illustration"><img src="https://www.annecy.org/resources/emailings/images/Emailing_456x_en.png" alt="chiffres" /></p> <br /> <h2>Look back at the winners</h2> <p style="font-size: 14px; margin-left: 50px;"><strong>> <a title="Check out the Official Awards" href="https://www.annecy.org/festival:en/awards" target="_blank">Official Awards</a></strong><br /><strong>> <a title="Check out the 2020 Special Prizes" href="https://www.annecy.org/festival:en/awards#autr" target="_blank">Special Prizes</a></strong><br /><strong>> <a title="Watch the ceremonies again" href="https://www.youtube.com/user/annecyfestival" target="_blank">Watch the ceremonies again</a></strong></p> <br /> <p class="illustration"><img src="https://www.annecy.org/resources/emailings/images/dates_festival_2021_emailing.jpg" alt="dates 2021" /></p> <p style="font-size: 18px; text-align: center; font-weight: bold;">See you on 14th to 19th June 2021 lakeside in Annecy, to finally celebrate the 60<sup>th</sup> anniversary<br />and African animation!</p> <br /> <p><strong>Would you like a souvenir of this historical edition?</strong><br />Get the official poster and art notebook at the <a href="https://www.bdfugue.com/festival-animation-annecy" target="_blank">Boutique du Festival@BDfugue</a></p> Wed, 01 Jul 2020 00:00:00 +0200 Glen Keane Joins the Work in Progress Programme https://www.annecy.org/news:a2616 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2616 The animated feature film 'Over the Moon' by Glen Keane, produced by Netflix and Pearl Studio, completes the WIP programme!<br /><p>We are even happier to receive this exclusive presentation in our 2020 Work in Progress as this animated musical feature film is the result of <strong>a collaboration that started in 2017 at Annecy</strong> following a Keynote with Glen Keane where Peilin Chou was in attendance!</p> <p>The story is about a bright young girl, fueled by determination and a passion for science, who builds a rocket ship to the moon to prove the existence of a legendary Moon Goddess.</p> <p><strong>The speakers:</strong></p> <ul> <li> <span style="color: #0080c6; font-weight: bold;">Glen Keane</span>, Director / Glen Keane Productions</li> <li> <span style="color: #0080c6; font-weight: bold;">Gennie Rim</span>, Producer / Glen Keane Productions</li> <li> <span style="color: #0080c6; font-weight: bold;">Peilin Chou</span>, Producer / Pearl Studio</li> <li> <span style="color: #0080c6; font-weight: bold;">John Kahrs</span>, Co-Director / Glen Keane Productions</li> <li> <span style="color: #0080c6; font-weight: bold;">Celine Desrumaux</span>, Production Designer / Netflix</li> </ul> <p><strong>> <a style="text-decoration: underline; color: #000000; font-weight: bold;" title="Watch the WIP" href="https://online.annecy.org/product/over-the-moon" target="_blank">Watch the WIP</a></strong> (badgeholders only)</p> <p><strong>> See the trailer</strong></p> <div class="blc_iframe"><img class="blc_iframe_img" src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhEAAJAIAAAP///wAAACH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAAQAAkAAAIKhI+py+0Po5yUFQA7" alt="" /> <iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/26DIABx44Tw" width="720" height="405"></iframe></div> <p class="illustration"><img src="https://www.annecy.org/resources/emailings/images/emailing_over_the_moon_2020_Logo.jpg" alt="" /></p> Tue, 23 Jun 2020 15:00:00 +0200 One More Week to Enjoy Annecy 2020 Online!
