Each year, the Mifa Pitches aim to showcase the best original animation film projects in development. Initially in 4 categories — Feature Films, Short Films, TV Series & Specials and Digital Experiences — the Pitches are becoming more elaborate every year.
These Pitch sessions are a privileged time to discover the universes and sensitivities in their own right, which reflect young international creativity.
2022 Sessions (Reservation required):
- Feature Films Pitches: Wednesday 15th June, 9:00 am to 10:30 am
- Short Films Pitches: Wednesday 15th June, 11:00 am to 1:00 pm
- TV Series & Specials Pitches: Thursday 16th June, 9:00 am to 11:00 am
- Digital Experiences Pitches: Thursday 16th June, 11:00 am to 12:30 pm
The Mifa Pitches, whether they are Feature Films, Short Films, TV Series & Specials or Digital Experiences, are designed to reveal the best original animation film projects in development.
With an international dimension, the Mifa Pitches make room for diversity and offer an eclectic selection, whether geographical, artistic, or technical. The selected authors present their projects to an audience of professionals and enthusiasts, in the hope of receiving future support.
The Animation du Monde label was launched in 2015 to showcase creations from territories where animation is just emerging due to lack of industry, funding, or training. This label’s aims, present in each of the Mifa Pitch formats, are to give everyone an opportunity, widen our horizons, and discover incredible talents.
For each Pitch session organised during the Mifa, loyal partners reward authors and their projects through grants, residencies, pre-purchases or technical support. There is one common aim: to contribute to the projects’ development and offer them additional means so they can come to life.
The Selection Committees are established each year to choose the projects that will be pitched during the Mifa sessions. For each of the categories, European experts from the animation sector discuss the many projects submitted and determine which ones will be presented at Annecy.
The Mifa willingly follows up on the evolution of the animation projects presented during the Pitch sessions and also asks the writers for feedback a few months later concerning the development of the projects presented.
This section showcases the progress of all the projects presented during the Mifa Pitches that are completed and are now on a successful journey (festival selections, screenings, awards, etc.).
