The Annecy Festival 2016 Initial Line-up Has Been Revealed

Every year people from the animation industry the world over descend on the town of Annecy, France to attend the Annecy  International Animation Film Festival. This year's event is being held between 13th and 18th June 2016.

And then there's the small matter of the 200 plus animated works (including TV episodes, shorts and commercials) that will screen at this year's fest.
