We officially declare the 44th edition of the Annecy Festival open, and for the 1st time ever online!
The Annecy Festival and Mifa team are excited to provide a unique experience to share with you this year; our unprecedented and entirely online 2020 edition to adapt to the current circumstances. This is an exceptional opportunity to participate in the Festival and enjoy the best of animation at home, wherever you are!
The Festival will heartily blow out their virtual 60th candle with the entire connected community of animation enthusiasts and professionals, whilst we wait to meet you in flesh and blood in Annecy, in 2021, and properly celebrate this milestone birthday, and pay tribute to animation from the African continent.
Most of the 2020 Official Selection is available now and until 30th June. You can also access unique and exclusive content, as well as our usual formats, for a fortnight full of exchanges and wonderful discoveries!
And we have a surprise to open the festivities: the filmmaker Wes Anderson, whom we announced as this year’s honorable guest, is not here physically but he did want to share a few words with us!
And now, let’s go and celebrate animation film: we hope you have a rich, vibrant and animated two weeks!
Welcome to Annecy 2020 Online and have a great Festival everyone!
Get your accreditation, it’s not too late!
