After a spell at the Mendoza Fine Arts School he gave up his studies to devote himself to drawing satirical cartoons and threw himself into wordless comics.</p> <p>In 1962 he created a character called Mafalda, a cheeky young middle-class heroine who rebels against the adult world, and will influence all generations to come. From 1964 to 1973, Quino will express his personal opinions on his era and the Argentine dictatorship through his fictional character, which will subsequently be adapted into an animated series.</p> <p>Quino was awarded the Legion of Honour for his 60 years of drawing, and an extraordinary fact, Mafalda, was also awarded this Legion of Honour, a first ever for a comic-strip character.</p> <p>The Annecy International Animation Film Festival were fortunate to welcome Quino in 2006 for an exhibition dedicated to his favourite character.</p> <p class="illustration"><img title="Quino / Annecy Festival 2006 - Photo : Farid Sedik" src="https://www.annecy.org/resources/images/2020_actu_DC_Quino_DSC3949.jpg" alt="Quino / Annecy Festival 2006" /></p> Fri, 02 Oct 2020 00:00:00 +0200 The Annecy Festival Residency is Launched! https://www.annecy.org/news:a2603 https://www.annecy.org/actualites:a2603 The Annecy Festival Residency will be focusing on graphic development for animated feature films.<br /><p><strong>Mickaël Marin</strong>, CEO, CITIA<br /> "<em>The development of the Artists’ Residency, which focuses on feature films, is an important and historic step for Annecy.<br /> Land of the Festival, Annecy will now become land of creation.<br /> This is also an additional commitment for CITIA to support works and artists that are the mainstay of our action.<br /> I would like to thank the partners who have agreed to accompany us in this wonderful project.

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.

This short presentation features some very beautiful and sometimes quite surprising answers.</p> <p><strong>Was this period a simple parenthesis, or will it change our lives forever?</strong><br /> In line with LFA’s past actions, and in direct reaction to recent weeks’ international upheavals and growing awareness in the importance of diversity and inclusion, LFA is reinforcing it’s initiatives in favour of inclusion in the animation industry in France. 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. These projects will be presented during the Annecy 2021 festival.</p> <p>Find it on <a title="Anncy Online video platform" href="https://online.annecy.org/product/carte-blanche-women-in-animation" target="_blank"><strong>Annecy Online video platform</strong></a>.</p> Wed, 17 Jun 2020 00:00:00 +0200
