Film Without Borders is pleased to announce a new program cooperation with the Sustainability Animation Residency (SAR), France. For the first time, a selection of SAR competition films will be screened at the festival. In addition to these ecological animation shorts, this year’s SAR winner Coretin Cholley will also present his film “The Vanishing of the Animals” through animation drawings, storyboard and synopsis. Gabrielle Lissot, last year’s winner, will also present her SAR project “Les Louves”, which is already in production.
SAR in Provence near Arles was created in collaboration between Schliemann Residency Provence and MIYU Distribution with the support of Do Not Disturb to help amplify the urgency of environmental action with the powerful tools of animation.
