Last night, my friends and I went to see Bob Sinclar and other electronic music artists perform on Annecy’s famous Paquier lakeside celebrating the International Animated Film Festival. The event hosting over 30,000 fans and onlookers began at 8:30PM and lasted until 1:00AM. Here are a couple of videos documenting the evening.
Here are some fun facts about the International Animated Film Festival:
- It began in 1960, but didn’t become annual until 1998.
- The event’s major sponsor is the International Animated Film Association.
- The different categories of animated films are: Full-length films, short films, films produced for television and advertising, student films, films made for the internet
- Each night of the week long festival, there is a free film shown on the public promenade of Annecy located near a beautiful lake and mountains.
