Refocussing on young audience animation films, FOLIMAGE, an animation studio based at La Cartoucherie (a center of excellence for the animation industry) in Bourg-lès Valence, France, is issuing a new call for projects :
The Artist-in-Residence program has been created to give authors an opportunity to make a personal five-minute animation film, that combines comedy and humour aimed at 5 to 7 year-olds.
Applicants must submit a project with a real author’s point of view, develop original graphics and have already directed one or two short films (including films made in Art Schools). Projects can be developped together with an author or an illustrator, but the only resident will be the director.
This call for projects is shared broadly on our partner’s websites, animation studios, international animation schools as well as on websites dedicated to illustration and/or animation cinema.
*** DEADLINE : May 3rd, 2019 ***
- The application files must be received by Folimage before May 3th, 2019. The projects will be sent to the committee made up of the partners‘ representatives.
- The final decision will be made in June 2019.
Starting from January 2020, the winner will move to Folimage studio (Valence) for a year, and make his/her film with the studio provided facilities.
The film will also be included into Mèche Courte program and screened in cinemas in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. A book for children will be published by Bayard at the same time as the film comes out.
