An­necy to Spot­light Women, Spain

The An­necy In­ter­na­tional An­i­mated Film Fes­ti­val will cel­e­brate women who have left their mark on the his­tory of an­i­ma­tion, cur­rent fig­ure­heads and promis­ing young cre­atives from film schools in an­i­ma­tion at this year’s an­nual fes­ti­val.

Set for June 15-20 in An­necy, France, the fes­ti­val’s of­fi­cial poster will be de­signed by Regina Pes­soa, win­ner of the An­necy Cristal in 2006 for her short film, Tragic Story with Happy End­ing. Her poster will be un­veiled in March.

The spot­light on women also will in­clude an all-fe­male jury, pro­grams of films by women direc­tors and a trib­ute to fe­male an­i­ma­tion pi­o­neers made through films spe­cially cre­ated by stu­dents from Go­belins l’école de l’im­age.

The fes­ti­val also will honor this year Spain as guest coun­try and ex­plore the mul­ti­ple facets of Span­ish an­i­ma­tion. Spe­cial pro­grams, the launch of a DVD book and panel pre­sen­ta­tions will en­sure that that the col­ors of Spain will per­vade the fes­ti­val pro­gram and be well rep­re­sented at the film mar­ket.
