Go inside one of the most desirable incubators for animated film, the International Residency for Animated Films at the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud.

Each year, with a special emphasis on supporting young authors, the program brings authors and directors to the Loire Valley where they can nurture new projects. This taped program showcases a new generation of French animators who will present their work and discuss what they accomplished at Fontevraud, from script development to animation techniques.
