This year, Mifa – the main animation market held during the Annecy festival – is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
To mark the occasion a new award has been created: the Mifa & Variety’s Animation Personality of the year.
At the 2015 edition, which will be held from June 15 – 20, the award will be presented to Chris Meledandri, producer, founder and director of Illumination Entertainment.
In an edition announced as being dedicated to women, with an all-female international jury and special programs featuring works by women, in addition to the poster designed by the Portuguese animator Regina Pessoa, the Rai Fiction series for children “L’arte con Matì e Dadà” (in co-production with Bologna’s Achtoons) will be the only Italian product selected in the television Film category, whilst the CSC – Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia has managed to place two end of course shorts in the relevant sec- tion: “Pircantaturi” and “Cosmoetico”.
