Heute in Cannes:
The objective of the Animation Day in Cannes is to facilitate the promotion of Animation during the Cannes Film Festival which does not traditionally offer a window for animators besides the likes of Pixar or Disney.

Hier ein Einblick in einige der dort vorgestellten Projekte:
JUNOD by Shinichiro Kimura Japan, 76 minutes
A Swiss doctor arranged for the delivery of 15 tons of medicine and medical supplies to Hiroshima just after the atomic bomb was dropped on the city and personally treated the victims himself. That benefactor was Marcel Junod, head of the ICRC delegation in Japan. There is a monument to Dr. Junod in a corner of Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, but, unfortunately, few people are aware of his selfless achievements.
As an ICRC delegate, Dr. Junod plunged ahead through a war-torn era and saved many precious lives without regard to nationality or race. Armed with know-how, courage, the ability to negotiate and, most of all, a love for humanity, he got through many hopeless situations. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of the idea for the Red Cross. We want to produce an animated film that will portray selfless love – the spirit of the Red Cross which Dr. Junod embodied – and his accomplishments and send from Hiroshima a „gift of love“ like that of Dr. Junod to as many people as possible.
The NEPHILIM story follows an atypical young priest, Father Markus, and four other warrior characters on a mission to save the world from a catastrophic ending. They deal with many individual obstacles, often clashing, until they arrive at defining moments when they must choose to work together to defeat an uprising evil. The series begins with the first signs of warfare evolving between good and evil. Set in modern times, two archangels, a determined priest, an ex-homicide detective and a resurrected spirit form an unlikely alliance, who unite to obstruct an upsurge of fallen angels and the termination of free will. The final battle was destined long ago when seeds of the initial race of Nehpilim were planted by Beshwa, the first fallen angel to mate with humans during the early days on earth. Now Father Markus must lead a war against the fallen angel, Azazel, who moves to release Beshwa from his shackles, to mate again, but this time with the Succubus, Semyaza, if a new race of Nephilim is to begin. If born, the Nephilim will prevail over all mortals, and wreak unmitigated havoc and unstoppable evil.
