The Annecy Festival Residency is launched!

Annecy Résidence

It is official, this coming April 2021, CITIA will welcome its first residents to the Papeteries – Image Factory!

Along with the support from the Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, the Département de Haute-Savoie, the Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée (CNC) and France Télévisions, the Annecy International Animation Film Festival will assist creation by setting up a residency for graphic development in animated feature films.

With international positioning, top-of-the-range mentoring and a unique showcase on the professional world of animation, the Annecy Festival Residency offers a 3-month time capsule (5 April to 27 June 2021), focused on graphic reflection and evolution.

“The development of the Artists’ Residency, which focuses on feature films, is an important and historic step for Annecy. Land of the Festival, Annecy will now become land of creation. This is also an additional commitment for CITIA to support works and artists that are the mainstay of our action. I would like to thank the partners who have agreed to accompany us in this wonderful project. More than ever we need to support creation and culture. It is for our common good.” says Mickaël Marin, CEO of CITIA.
