The French Institute Alliance Française goes all out for its fifth annual animation festival, with premieres, retrospectives, workshops and more. This year's edition boasts 28 U.S. and 23 New York premieres of feature-length and short films, including Golden Globes Nominee My Sunny Maad, Princess Dragon and Archipelago. Attendees will also be able to sit on a special talk about the influence of Disney on French animation with a 30th-anniversary screening of Beauty and the Beast with The Met Museum and check out works in progress with appearances by Jim Capobianco (The Inventor: About Leonardo Da Vinci), Benjamin Massoubre (Little Nicholas) and Alain Ughetto (No Dogs or Italians Allowed). Of course, there will also be a shorts program, the annual student short film competition, an online program (including a panel on Women in Animation) and video game demonstrations, AR and VR. The Closing Night Exclusive Screening is The Summit of The Gods. The full program is here.
