  Animation du Monde: a Winner in Armenia 

The Animation du Monde workshops are underway and at ReAnimania the "Quand je suis triste" project by Lilit Altunyan was chosen after the pitch sessions.

For the Festival ReAnimania in Erevan, in Armenia, and as part of the Mifa Animation du Monde, a delegation of professionals from the sector went there to supervise a workshop.

Seven projects took part in the workshop, directed by 3 experts: Corinne Destombes (Producer, Folimage), Arthur de Pins (Director, Comic Illustrator) and Géraldine Baché (Head of Éducation à l’image & Mifa Projects).

On completion of four days of work and a final pitch session, the project Quand je suis triste by Lilit Altunyan, won the Grand Prix, this allows her to present it at the Animation du Monde Pitch Sessions in June 2019 in Annecy.

The quality of the Armenian projects was so high the experts decided to issue two additional awards:

  • a Special Distinction for the project Ha ?, by Yelling Animation Studio, which highlights the freshness and innovation of Armenian animation.
  • a Coup de Cœur Award for the project Aurora’s Sunrise, by Inna Sahakyan, an animated documentary (feature film) historical, deep and poignant.

Congratulations to all the winners and see you at the Annecy International Animation Film Market in June 2019 to discover Lilit Altunyan’s project.
