The Annecy Festival 2023 (June 11-17, 2023) is currently taking place – and the Animationsinstitut of the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg is right in the middle of it! A large number of students of the institute is on site, talking to industry professionals and colleagues, and attending screenings.

This year, the short films DODO (Producer: Jiayan Chen, Director: Yi Luo, Animation: Oscar Bittner, Sarah Schulz, Laura Staab, Sabine Volkert) and MAKULATOUR (Director/Score: Tim Markgraf), produced at the Animationsinstitut, are part of the official student competition. Fingers crossed!

For the first time, the GERMANY ANIMATION MEETUP will be taking place in person! And where better than at the International Animated Film Festival in Annecy (June 11-17, 2023)?
