|DELPHINE ERNOTTE CUNCI
CEO of France Télévisions
As a leading backer of French animation, France Télévisions is proud to be the official partner of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
Again this year, this not-to-be-missed event offers an opportunity to celebrate the exceptional vitality of one of our most dynamic and daring creative industries which magnifies France’s radiant global influence.
Throughout the year France Télévisions places animation in the limelight on all its channels, especially Okoo. Our children’s programming blends strong linear exposure with extensive digital distribution which is becoming increasingly popular even among the youngest viewers.
A mainstay of our bond to young viewerships, animation is an essential genre on our public service slate. Since animated works are so vibrantly diverse, they spark the imagination, enhance sensitivity and enrich the worldview of their audiences. It is for this very reason that we have committed to the creatives who breathe life into these works.
Via its partnership with the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, France Télévisions reaffirms its ambition to back the French festivals showcasing the best of worldwide creativity.
So to each and every one of you, a very good festival!
