Paying tribute to China

"China is a big country, almost an entire continent: its animation is rich and diverse. We plan on providing the broadest possible overview on historical and current Chinese animation by presenting as many major productions as films made by the new generation of independent artists. We want to talk about the industry and its rapid development, but we also want to hear from unique voices." Marcel Jean, Artistic Director of the Annecy Festival

The tribute to Chinese animation will be built around an impressive exhibition at the Château d’Annecy, musée lacs et montagnes and a retrospective made up of around ten programmes.

As for the Film Market (Mifa)…
A Chinese delegation, led by the SARFT (State Administration of Radio, Film and Television) will be attending under a 150 m² pavilion.
