Why Animators Should Go To Annecy on June 15th

Annecy is to animation as Cannes is to Film. Like Cannes, there is no particular reason why this small and rather attractive town on a lake in the French Alps should host the world's biggest animation festival - except for the fact that they have always done so. They got there first, and while many towns and cities now have animation festivals, Annecy is the first, the original, the biggest and still the best.

Why go to Annecy?
Any animator who wants to make a career in the business needs to go to Annecy. Even if you only go once, go there just to say you have been.

Who goes?
Annecy is full of professional animators, studios, recruiters, students, pr folks - in short, everyone in the business.
