 by the Czech Republic’s Jan Švankmajer, a huge programme dedicated to Brazil (the country of honour at this edition of the festival) and the customary strong presence of US studios, with a world-premiere screening of the unfinished version of Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, the awarding of an Honorary Crystal to Brad Bird (Incredibles 2), and a film lesson by Duke Johnson and Dino Stamatopoulos (Starburns Industries), among other highlights.

That’s not to mention the Keynote Speeches, the Making Of (with Carlos Saldanha at the helm), the conferences (in particular, "Independent European Animation: How to Stand Out in the International Market?" and "Digital Platforms: A New Eldorado for Adult Animation?"), the Studio Focuses (Pixar, Warner, Netflix, Paramount, Google Spotlight Stories, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and Pearl Studio) and the Work in Progress sessions, including The Swallows of Kabul by Zabou Breitman and Eléa Gobbé-MévellecThe Bears’ Famous Invasion of Sicily by Italy’s Lorenzo MattotiBuñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles by Salvador Simó (produced by Spain’s Sygnatia together with the Netherlands’ Submarine), La Traversée by Florence Miailhe (a joint production between France, the Czech Republic and Germany) and Playmobil: The Movie by Lino DiSalvo (staged by On Animation Studios). 

From 12-15 June, nigh-on 3,000 professionals will gather at the MIFA (International Animated Film Market), the 28th edition of which includes several new additions, such as market screenings (open to producers, distributors and sales agents), a Shoot the Book Anim (with ten books selected that have been judged viable for an animated film adaptation) and a Meet the Composers programme. Among the main events on the schedule are the Pitches (37 projects, including the French-Italian title Chicken for Linda! by Chiara Malta and Sébastien LaudenbachGolem by Italy’s Lorenzo Ceccotti, and the Canadian-French co-production The Panda Project by Clément Langlais), the Territory Focuses, the Mifa Campus (sponsored by Richard Williams), and the press conferences organised by studios and TV channels, in addition to myriad workshops, round-tables and panels. All of this makes for an increasingly successful market that has also become an unmissable crossroads for recruiting the young animation talents of tomorrow. Lastly, we should point out that a Mifa Animation Industry Award will be handed out to the Women in Animation (WIA) association.
