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!
The new Head of the Animationsinstitut, Jan Pinkava, is attending Annecy Festival. At this year’s German Reception (Tuesday, June 13, 18:00-20:00 CET, by invitation, organized by AG Animationsfilm, AG Kurzfilm, Animation Germany, AMCRS, Animations Production Days, Animationsinstitut, FMX, German Films, ITFS, Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung, MFG Baden-Wuerttemberg), he will give an introductory speech.
On Wednesday, June 14, starting at 15:00 CET, there will be an Animationsinstitut picnic at Jardins de l’Europe, Annecy. Come around!
