This year Annecy Festival was a possibility to stay connected for mydragon company, to avow determination and say that Animation dubbing is not
one of those things that can be recorded in a home closet, but as a task that should be done with devotion.
The 2018 edition of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival beat all the records. There were 11,700 badge holders, 3,086 films were submitted to the selection committee and 93 countries were represented.
The homage to Brazilian animation, coupled with a theme devoted to “Music and animation film” gave rhythm and color to the event. Brazil was represented at the Mifa by a delegation of 54 companies with a 45m² stand. Exhibitions, exclusive screenings, concert films, musical performances, jury members, Territory Focus, Sound Creation Workshops, and Masterclasses all punctuated the week putting these themes in the spotlight.
The Mifa also beat all records this year, with an even larger surface area of 7,231m², 3800 badge holders, 827 exhibitors, 75 countries represented and 468 projects submitted for the Mifa Pitches. New mediums were used to reinforce market propositions: Market Screenings, Shoot the Book Anim’, Demo Sessions, Meet the Composers… And to round up, the Mifa Animation Industry Award was awarded for the first time to an organization, the Women in Animation (WIA) association, confirming Annecy’s commitment for equality at the heart of organizations.
