The Annecy International Animation Film Festival is the biggest animated film festival in the world. It annually brings animation lovers from around the globe to discover the latest animated gems, current and future trends, and meet filmmakers and creators.

Straight from the 2020 edition, the first to be held on a virtual platform, this program of films includes a series of notable award-winning shorts such as Genius Loci (2021 César short list). They are bookended by two tailor-made sequences created by second-year students from Gobelins, l’École de l’Image (Paris).
