The Annecy Animation Film Festival's Creative Focus on 5 to 8 June 2012, the place for exchange between animation professionals and new talents, is continuing its engagement to encourage and promote projects in their development phase.

You can use the Call for Projects to present your animation projects and optimise your chances of getting your film off the ground!

Many films have gone into production thanks to the visibility and prizes gained through their passage at the Creative Focus – check out the "Project update" page on for more info.

All submitted projects for TV series and specials:

  • are shown to a committee of experts;
  • compete to become the Festival and Mifa “favourite project” in the TV series and specials;
  • can be consulted at the Creative Focus.

All selected projects are given their own space on the website and specific promotion.

Their authors are given:

  • free "Mifa + Conferences + Festival" accreditation;
  • the opportunity to present their projects to professionals at the Creative Focus;
  • advice from an expert who will help them prepare their presentations.


You will find all the information you need to register a project below. Please read the submission requirements carefully as applications that are incomplete or do not meet the required criteria cannot compete.


  • 15 February 2012 (date as per postmark): deadline for sending submissions.
  • Mid-March 2012: consultation and evaluation of projects by a committee of experts.
  • Before 15 May 2012: contact person informed by email of decisions regarding the project.
