France Télévisions has decided to emphasize their presence and collaboration at the Festival and the Mifa by becoming the official partner of the event.

"France Télévisions has a long-standing history with the Festival and the Mifa: we had numerous encounters and introductions at Annecy that have participated in the creation of our success. We are very pleased to formalise our well-established relationship with this expanded partnership, and to show the international animation world our common challenges to the public audience.”

Delphine Ernotte Cunci, CEO of France Télévisions

For Annecy, this joining of forces with European animation’s prime partner is excellent encouragement for us to continue to expand our event and thereby contribute to the international vibrancy of this sector."
