Each year students from the graduating class of the remarkable Gobelins, l’école de l’image (Goeblins School of Communications) in Paris are divided into teams that create short animations to be used as introductions to each of the five day’s events at the Annecy International Festival of Animation.
The emphasis is on 2D hand drawn animation. This year’s theme is “France in the Spotlight”.
One of the films, Au Lapin Agile, portrays Picasso and other artists at one of their cafe hangouts, in which a fistfight erupts into splashes of modern art genres.
