2019 Festival Coverage:

2019 Festival Poster:

French illustrator Marc Boutavant has created the poster for Anima 2019. Born in Dijon in 1970, he has published several children's books with a number of different publishers such as Éditions Albin Michel, Actes Sud, Nathan, Seuil, Bayard and Mila Éditions. His many creations include a very personal animal universe with the series Mouk; the series Ariol et ses amis, in partnership with Emmanuel Guibert; the character Bogueugeu with Béatrice Fontanel and the series Chien pourri, with Colas Gutman.

Boutavant is part of the group of comic book authors (along with Marjan Satrapi, Lewis Trondheim, Christophe Blain, Joann Sfar, David B., Émile Bravo...) working from the Paris-based Atelier des Vosges-Atelier Nawak, who have renewed the comic book industry in France over the past twenty years.

Ariol and Mouk have already been adapted into animated series for TV, and the first season of Chien pourri (52 x 13’) is currently in development, with Davy Duran, Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar set to direct

2018 Festival Coverage:

 

Poster and visuals:

The visuals for Anima 2018 are the work of illustrator and filmmaker Noémie Marsily and musician, animator and videographer Carl Roosens.

This hyper-creative duo have a lot to offer, as can be seen in their latest very impressive short film "I Don't Feel Anything Anymore" that recounts the trials and tribulations of a pair of lovers, who live isolated in a crane basket, and their attempts to make themselves useful in a world in turmoil. They have a number of other films made together, including the multi-awarded "Autour du lac".
