To ensure the health and safety of its participants the Annecy Festival will organize the hybrid edition and adapt to necessary measures in accordance with governmental announcements for the period of the event.

Film content will be available on the festival’s viewing platform in collaboration with Kinow.


Online access will not include competition feature films, TV films, and VR works, which will only be available through on-site screenings.

Due to rights holders’ requirements, some films may not be accessible in certain territories, or may access limited to a maximum number of views. Therefore, it is possible that you may not have access to all the programming for the entire event.

Also note, for the hybrid options, the number of accreditations on sale will be limited, due to the restrictions in force.
