Due to new developments in the audio-visual field over the past few years, Annecy has made some changes to its MIFA International Animated Film Market, which runs from June 8-10, 2005.
The adjustments to the market will include: a general Hospitality area at the heart of the market; a special Meeting area with flexible work space and special assistance; a new Chill Out area with bar, terrace and catering; a flexible business space with stands and other presentation areas; and increased comfort with adequate air-conditioning. New services added for professionals include: a work area/terrace reserved for buyers and a digital video library for professionals in one of the large Imperial Palace salons, equipped with 25 stations linked to a server allowing professionals to screen programs presented by market attendees, as well as all films entered in the festival, with priority access for buyers.
The changes were based on a survey of French professionals, which was used by the Centre National de la Cinematographie (CNC), the Cica, the Communaute de lAgglomeration dAnnecy and the Conseil General de la Haute-Savoie. For more information, visit www.annecy.org.
