Annecy 2010: International Animation Film Festival

First founded in 1960, the International Animation Film Festival will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2010.

Annecy 2010 as the world’s largest event dedicated to animation, Annecy is a fun and friendly way to discover the latest in animation masterpieces, meet major players and young talents, check out new trends, and find ideal business partners, all in one place. Editorial from www.annecy.org

First founded in 1960, the International Animation Film Festival will be celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2010.

Every year, there is a competition around  the concept and the visual realisation of this event. The visuals and the logo "Annecy 2010" are used for a multitude of promotional material: signs, posters, books, catalogues, kakemonos, web site, video animation, bags, t-shirts, ....

Well, my proposition was selected this year.

For the 50 years of the film festival, I decided to unite all the award-wining films of the past as well as the old posters of the festival to form the number 50: they display in a paper ribbon  trail covered with animation drawings. The curves also suggest film reels and garlands.

The CITIA,  organisers of the festival, appreciated these double meanings in the image, as well as the mix of complexity and the sobriety: complex because of  the visual amount  and sober because of its black background and use of photography.
