The NFB at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival

NFB announces four short films to screen at Annecy

Three short films in official competition and one film in the Off-Limits Competition

The eagerly awaited return of Torill Kove and Michèle Lemieux

The National Film Board of Canada is making a strong showing at the 2024 Annecy International Animation Film Festival with four short films, including three in official competition. The latter are the highly anticipated Maybe Elephants (Mikrofilm/NFB) by Torill Kove; Le tableau (The Painting) by Michèle Lemieux, made using the Alexeïeff-Parker pinscreen; and Ryo Orikasa’s astonishing Miserable Miracle (Miyu Productions/NFB/New Deer). Filmmaker Jo Roy breaks new creative ground in her unique film, Corpus and the Wandering, which will screen in the Off-Limits Competition. All of these productions and co-productions have been inspired and informed by different art forms, from poetry to dance and the visual arts.

Taking place June 9–15, 2024, Annecy is an essential event that welcomes animation creators and professionals annually—the world’s largest festival dedicated solely to animation
