The iacc was well represented at this year’s Annecy International Animation Festival. Director Robin King, Program Coordinator Chris Colman and Assistant Li Yuan travelled from Shanghai to join iacc Masters Chris Landreth and Dan Sarto at the festival, held in the beautiful town of Annecy in south east France. Chris Landreth was there with his new film Subconscious Password (which has since gone on to win Best Short), while as always, Dan Sarto was busy taking care of AWN business, hosting panel sessions and interviewing the established and rising stars of animation. It was a busy week of meeting some of the biggest names in animation, watching the latest shorts and features (including the summer’s big releases Monsters University, Despicable Me 2 and How to Train Your Dragon) attending conferences and presentations and enjoying the idyllic surroundings.
