International animation project Paris Lyon Singapore launches its YouTube channel
In February 2020, the Paris Lyon Singapore project—founded by animation schools Atelier de Sèvres, Emile Cohl and Lasalle College of the Arts, the French Embassy in Singapore and CITIA—launched its own YouTube channel. A unique opportunity to discover projects by animation students from all over the world presented at the MIFA Campus of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival.
A video channel independent of schools on which to share student projects
Each year, students from the animation schools that are members of the Paris Lyon Singapore project present their animated film projects at the MIFA Campus of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival. They are now available on the new YouTube channel dedicated to the project: Paris Lyon Singapore YouTube Channel. These one-and-a-half-minute animated short films are on a given theme, which in 2019 was “The City”.
Paris Lyon Singapore: promoting animated film around the world
The world of animated film is a rich and flourishing one. With the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, CITIA—its organiser—aims to promote this industry around the world.
Founded in January 2018 following a trip to Singapore organised by CITIA and the French Embassy in Singapore, the Paris Lyon Singapore project aims to promote the know-how of animation school students around the world. The partnership, established between two renowned French schools—École Émile Cohl (Lyon) and Atelier de Sèvres (whose visibility is enhanced thanks to the talent on its highly selective Animation Degree Course)—the French Embassy in Singapore and CITIA, promotes cultural and educational exchanges within the framework of training in animation professions at an international level.
Each year, animation schools challenge their students to make an animated film of around one minute on a given theme. Presented at the MIFA Campus of the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, the films are judged with the aim of being distributed internationally. This formative project is exceptionally enriching for animation students.
