In addition to the CalArtians screening films at the festival, Annecy’s 2023 poster was designed by animator and CalArts alum Jorge R. Gutiérrez (Film/Video MFA 00). Gutiérrez also serves as a festival juror and leading the Mexican Animation Tribute with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro.

The Annecy Film Festival is a global showcase of animated films across genres and animation techniques. First organized in 1960, the festival was initially conceived as a biennial event but is now held annually. The films are screened in a number of cinemas in Annecy, as well as an open-air night projection at Pâquier, Annecy’s town center. AIAFF is sponsored by the International Animated Film Association.
