The excitement remains the same with the anticipation of sharing the best of recent animation production with you, like leading you down a path of discovery with our various new developments and special programmes.</p> <p>This year, stop-motion animation is in the spotlight to celebrate an ensemble of both playful and crafty techniques using materials which in themselves make you think about toys and, in consequence, about a certain perception of childhood that is often glorified or distorted by filmmakers.</p> <p>By including two cine-concerts in the programme – one with Pierre Hébert and Andrea Martignoni, the other with Stéphan Oliva and Jean-Marc Foltz – we're seeking to enhance the festive side of our event by providing festivalgoers with unique and hopefully unforgettable experiences. Along these same lines, the meetings with Isao Takahata and Pete Docter promise some exhilarating moments and everlasting memories.</p> <p>Other new additions, the vote for short and feature films in competition will be online and the special prize ceremony starting Friday night will allow us to better recognise the winners and reconfigure the closing ceremony.</p> <p>We are good and ready for a week full of opportunities, revelations and surprises. Now it's your turn to taste everything on the savoury menu we've concocted for you.<span class="lettrine fin">"</span></p> Mon, 09 Jun 2014 09:00:05 +0200 Annecy 2013 Replay https://www.annecy.org/daily-newsletter#547 https://www.annecy.org/ Go back over to the best moments of the Festival and Mifa with Annecy 2013 Replay<br /><p>Check out reports from the Festival and Mifa in a few days time in a new digital publication: Annecy 2013 Replay.</p> <p>Check on your e-mails!</p> Sat, 15 Jun 2013 08:30:00 +0200 Watch the best of the Festival at the Forum des images. https://www.annecy.org/daily-newsletter#548 https://www.annecy.org/ Discover the Annecy Festival list of winners.

Interview with Christelle Balcon and Boris Jacq<br /><p><strong>This is your first recruitment session in Annecy, isn't it?</strong><br /> Indeed, we need to add at least another 100 people to our crews between now and next year. We're looking for graphic designers in all departments, from storyboarding to compositing, through to animation and lighting.<br /> During our recruitment session on Wednesday, we met up with over 20 candidates, along with <em>Despicable Me 2</em> Director, Pierre Coffin.<br /> We're optimistic about the chances of a number of these talents joining us very soon.</p> <p><strong>It's the first time you've been here with a stand too? </strong><br /> Our presence in Annecy is very constructive for us. We can meet up with many talented artists from different and interesting backgrounds. We already had 165 people come and see us spontaneously on the stand Wednesday. Some are still studying, but is was a first contact for us. We'll be following them now till they finish their training and watching their graduation work attentively. We're making the most of our visit to Annecy to expand relations with the schools here.</p> <p><a title="Visit Illumination Mac Guff website" href="http://www.illuminationmacguff.com/" target="_blank">Illumination Mac Guff</a> is the production studio for <em>Despicable Me, The Lorax</em> and <em>Despicable Me 2</em> for <a title="Visit Illumination Entertainment website" href="http://www.illuminationentertainment.com/" target="_blank">Illumination Entertainment</a> and <a title="Visit Universal website" href="http://www.universalpictures.fr" target="_blank">Universal</a>.</p> Fri, 14 Jun 2013 08:30:00 +0200
