France’s premiere animation event continues its alliance with the nation’s most prestigious film market for a third consecutive year, with the Annecy Goes to Cannes program set to present five feature-length works in progress at the 2018 Marché du Film. The market, taking place May 8-17, expects more than 3,900 producers and 3,300 buyers/distributors to attend — and some may discover the next big thing in animation.
As part of its dedication to supporting the animation industry, Annecy provides this opportunity for a selection of projects in the works to report on their progress. The first exclusive images, animations, trailers and artwork will be presented to distributors, investors and sales representatives at Cannes.
Annecy Goes to Cannes will be presented Fri., May 11 from 10 a.m. to noon in Palais K, Salle J.L. Bory. The 2018 program includes:
