"This ranking is a source of pride and a reward for the teams that work with our talented students every day! The graduation film La Bestia, directed by our young graduates, has just been awarded a prize at the Annie Awards 2021, the equivalent of the Oscars for animation; awarded at the CINÉLEBU festival, it is now eligible for the Oscars. This 1st place is also the recognition of our equal opportunity policy and the unfailing support of our partners such as Mediawan and Netflix. It's a great recognition for everyone! "says Nathalie Berriat, Director of GOBELINS. 



GOBELINS, which celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2016, has gained international recognition. Today, it offers a complete curriculum that meets international standards: a Bachelor of Arts degree in 3 years and the possibility of pursuing a Master of Arts degree for two years. Its animation film designer and director training program has just obtained the visa for its diploma. A pre-preparatory animation course, a one-year 3D character animator course in partnership with CITIA in Annecy and a professional degree in audiovisual production management in partnership with the University of Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, complete this training offer.

Among the most prestigious awards won by our graduates: a nomination at the OSCARS 2009 for Oktapodi, the "Annie Awards 2019" for Best Friend and 2021 for La Bestia, "LA Shorts 2019" for The Ostrich Politic, "Best Show" at the SIGGRAPH, "Best Student film" at Anima Mundi, "Special International Jury Prize" at Hiroshima, etc.
