Annecy: 2023 Mifa Pitches A Selection Reflecting Society!

Committed, confrontational or militant,
Mellow, poetic or heartwarming,
Introspective, personal or self-critical,
Entertaining, legendary or whimsical…

… a plethora of adjectives to describe the free-spirited 2023 selection, which is daring and subtle in its treatment of current social issues. Make way for emancipation, humour and sarcasm!

„Nur ein Tag“ by Verena Fels, Martin Schmidt

Adventure, magic and friendship are also vectors for thrills and emotions for everyone’s enjoyment.

So, with this context in mind we look forward to seeing you in Annecy this June to discover the 32 projects selected among the 651 submitted this year. A stringent selection which aims to show you the best of the best! An incredibly complicated task when the quality is so high, but with the consistent drive to promote diversity, audacity and the unexpected.
