French Animation Fest
Nov 16 • 8:00 pm PST
Among this ambitious collection of eleven animated shorts, many have been selected for prestigious festivals such as the NIKON Film Festival and the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. This year’s selection also includes films by emerging filmmakers from renowned French animation schools, such as ESMA – École Supérieure des Métiers Artistiques. These up-and-coming creators reveal unique perspectives, singular voices and innovative aesthetics, making the festival a veritable field of discovery for film enthusiasts.
What’s more, contrary to popular belief, animation isn’t (just) for kids! In the short films it presents, the French Animation fest tackles themes better digested by adults: from societal issues to environmental concerns, each short film becomes a canvas on which the contours of our times are drawn, inviting the audience to debate, over a glass of wine and a cheese platter during intermission.
