For some time, Supinfocom (école SUPérieure d'INFOrmatique de COMmunication) has been the dominant digital animation school in France.

But there are some new kids on that block and, here at NZIFF’s Animation Now! Department, we have been watching them go from strength to strength in recent years. Schools such as Pole3D, Brassart, École des Nouvelles Images, ArtFX, ESMA and Georges Méliès are sending us showreels that flaunt increasingly complex and fascinating films.

This programme showcases the best work from the next generation of French digital artists and animators. And as we always do, we’re looking for that essential blend of great technique, the power of the animator’s vision and the most imaginative use of animation. — MT
