Discover the winners of the Annecy International Workshop organised in Jerusalem as part of the International Mifa Campus scheme.
The Jerusalem Film Fund, the French Embassy in Israel, and the Institut Français in Israel renewed their support for local creation offering 8 project leaders the opportunity to follow a remote support programme over several weeks. The scheme is part of the Mifa Campus led by the Mifa teams and aims to guide, create and evolve animation projects as they are just beginning.
The project leaders taking part in the Workshop were lucky to be coached by three complementary experts:
- Delphine Farhi Nicolini, freelance Animation Consultant and Artistic Producer
- Sophie Caron, Head of Development, Ellipsanime Productions
- Sébastien Tavel, Writer and Director
Since 15th December 2020, group and individual work sessions have enabled each candidate to improve their skills and have greater maturity. Everyone has practiced pitching ready to deliver the fruits of their work this Wednesday 20th January.
Congratulations to the project leaders who were selected at the end of the Pitch session:
- The Pit ‒ Stav Levi
- The End ‒ Anan Gibson
- Sleeping Ass Beauty ‒ Hadas Almagor
- That Bitch, Korky ‒ Aya Honig & Raz Sonnenfeld
- Special Distinction for 2:51 ‒ Moria Koren
The winners now access the second stage of the workshop with follow-up support and individual preparation between February and this coming June. The aim is to improve further and be ready to present the most advanced version of their projects during an Israeli Partner’s Pitch.
