The AFA Podcast 158: Animation First French Animation Festival 2021


In the latest episode of the AFA Podcast join Evan, Yvonne and Kelly as they discuss their experiences at the 2021 Animation First French Animation Festival which took place online this February. They talk French animation and focus on titles including feature films Calamity Jane and Josep which had their US premieres at this year's festival. Also discussed are special guest Wes Anderson's animated influences including The Plague Dogs and Peter and The Wolf. It's a really enjoyable conversation, especially if you are a big fan of French animation.
