✍️ Annecy Animation Showcase Headlines 5th Edition of Animation Day in Cannes

The Marché du Film and Annecy Film Festival, the world's leading animation film festival, are pleased to announce the return of Animation Day.

The 5th edition of this highly-anticipated event will feature the Annecy Animation Showcase, featuring five animated works-in-progress from across the globe, presented by their creative teams in Cannes to prospective sales agents, distributors, and festival programmers.

This year’s selection, selected by our partner Annecy Film Festival, is poised to be exceptional, with works from India, Japan, Brazil, France, and Spain. Attendees can expect to discover new animated works teeming with color, originality, and expert use of varied animated techniques, from 2D to hand-painted backgrounds and stylized rotoscoping methods.

In addition to the showcase, two panels dedicated to independent animation and Asian-European collaborations will be hosted at the Marché, in partnership with Annecy and Ties That Bind, the Europe-Asia Hub for all film professionals.

The day will then come to a celebratory close with an exclusive cocktail mixer where animation film enthusiasts can gather, connect and network.

📆 Animation Day takes place on Sunday, 21 May 2023 in Cannes.

Animation Day is organized by the Marché du Film, in partnership with Annecy Film Festival and in association with German Films – Animation Germany and Unifrance.
