"It is a great source of pride for the school to obtain this triple distinction once again. It rewards the commitment of our teams to our talented students.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank NETFLIX, MEDIAWAN and Guillermo del Toro, who have been working with us for many years. We are continuing our efforts in this direction with the launch in September of a high school animation course, 100% online, open to students from the city's priority districts. It is also the recognition of our policy of supporting French and international animation studios through programs that are enriched with new courses to better meet the needs of the creative industries. It's a great success for everyone" says Nathalie Berriat, Executive Director of GOBELINS.
