Creative breakthroughs are experiential. They come from the heart and soul of the artist’s journey! Annecy is representative of that destination where artists and producers find their North Star! Year after year, through thought and action, they discover the unfolding, cutting-edge which decodes the ‘multi layered’ intricacies of what animation does to advance the art and the science of storytelling.

Annecy was my first animation festival and hence it will always be special. My best memories from Annecy are watching some amazing animation films on the giant screen by the lake with beer and friends from around the world. Goosebumps! It’s an unbeatable experience. It’s hard to believe Annecy has completed six decades, it still manages to retain its fresh teen spirit. I love to attend Annecy as it always recharges my creative force. It truly celebrates the art of animation and am sure it will continue to inspire next generations of animators. Annecy pour toujours !
