  The Nippon Nordic stars finally revealed! 

As part of the Nippon Nordic, the Annecy Festival selected a prize-winning project whose creative talents will get to present it at the June Mifa Pitches.

A few months back, the Annecy Festival put out a project call, launched by The Animation Workshop, for interested Japanese and Danish artists, with the top prize being a three-week intercultural residency at Nippon Nordic, in Viborg (Denmark).

16 projects were accepted during this residence with Annecy's International Animated Film Market (Mifa) active participation. Pursuant to the workshop, pitch sessions were held and then Mifa picked the winning project.

The prize went to Kirinko, the animated webseries promoted by Julia Ai Sai & Nicolás Guarín.

The two project promoters are invited to present their series at the Mifa pitch sessions to be held in Annecy, within the TV series slot, at the International Animated Film Festival in June 2018.

Congratulations to the two prize-winners – we’ll be there in June to preview their animated project!
