GOBELINS at the Annecy Festival 2023
Discover the highlights of the week
GOBELINS Paris will be taking part in the Annecy International Animation Film Market from June 11th to June 17th 2023.
For almost 50 years, GOBELINS Paris animation students have been working in teams to produce very short films - between 30 and 60 seconds - to open each screening.
Screening of the students' short films
This year's production is exceptional, as 10 films have been made by the 2023 class of Bachelor of Arts in Character Animation and Animated Filmmaking.
Their short films will be shown exclusively throughout the festival week.
This year, they are exploring the theme of Mexico.
For those who won't be able to attend the event, you can discover the films on GOBELINS' social networks (YouTube, Instagram and Facebook).
