Cannes: A Day Dedicated to Animation

By Pickle  April 12, 2019

In a bid to strengthen the presence of animation at Cannes, the Marché du Film is collaborating with the Annecy International Animation Film Festival to create Animation Day.

Within the context of Animation Day, Annecy will offer a fourth Annecy Goes to Cannes, there will be five feature films in progress, complemented with a panel discussion examining adult animation film distribution, stated a press note, adding: “Be there on Sunday 19th May 2019 from 9:30 am, at the Olympia Cinema, 5 rue d’Antibes, Olympia theatre 1”.

“With the evolution of some models of distribution, we are seeing a higher level of permeability between different cinematographic genres.” Jérome Paillard, Executive Director of the Marché du Film, said. “There are a number of sales agents, distributors and producers who are now interested in animation – and not only animation for children. I immediately wanted to partner with the Annecy Festival for this day, whose expertise in this domain is unparalleled”.

According to Mickaël Marin, CEO, CITIA, “I can only revel in this initiative that enables our two entities to bolster the visibility of animated films at Cannes, and to support this marvelous dynamic experienced by animation feature film. I am very grateful to Jérôme Paillard and the Marché du Film de Cannes for this collaboration that enables diverse professionals to seize the opportunities of an art that is constantly pushing boundaries.”
