Thank you for joining us for FIAF’s second annual Animation First festival. This year, we presented even more films, shorts, panel discussions, immersive exhibitions, workshops, and video games that brought to light the breadth and artistry of French animation.

A big thank you to our featured speakers and guests  from France, especially guest of honor Michel Ocelot. We are grateful to our presenting sponsor, the City of Bordeaux, and the many festival sponsors and supporters who made this program possible.
