For more than sixty years, the Annecy Festival has been drawing professionals, enthusiasts, students and the curious to toast the creativity and diversity of animated movies. After two years impacted by the health crisis, the Haute-Savoie Department, a loyal partner of the Festival, is pleased to assist this new edition, to be held June 13 to 18 in Annecy, the sanctum of animation cinema.
Film Market, exclusive presentations of the latest animated masterpieces, gatherings with directors… Over the course of a week Annecy will set the world vibrating to the beat of animation, unveiling to festival-goers our area’s exceptional natural and cultural treasures. More broadly, all Haute-Savoie locals will be able to enjoy this unique experience, through the Pass grand public, the traditional Open-air Screenings on the Pâquier every weeknight, a special program for school children, as well as a department-wide tour June 13-30 through the region’s participating art house theaters.
We heartily congratulate the CITIA team, the volunteers and all those who play a role in this event, reputed worldwide for its great quality. We wish you beautiful moments of sharing, lovely discoveries and poetic escape as the screenings roll on!
