Annecy 2019: Gobelins Animated Shorts Honor Japan
by Tito W. James
The Annecy International Animation Festival is themed around a new country each year. This year the festival honored Japan; a nation who has given much to animation and inspired generations of artists. To show their love and respect for Japan students at Gobelins L’École de L’Image created four animated shorts themed around Japanese culture. Gobelins shorts were my first introduction to Annecy and they’ve garnered a fan-base amongst animation pros and fans alike.
