Canada at MIFA 2022: Meet the Animations

14 • 06

As part of the Canadian delegation participating in MIFA 2022, Telefilm Canada will be hosting the RDV CANADA: The Future of Animation pitch session on June 14th in the Salon Ravel of the Imperial Palace from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. CEST. 

This pitch session will showcase a diversity of voices and styles, going from hard-edged adult animation to educational projects aimed at young audiences. These five projects were selected by a jury of industry experts and represent an array of exciting new voices on the animation scene. 

‘Telefilm has been amazing’ says Jerry Thevenet, producer of Heroine. ‘As an Indigenous producer, I’m not used to this kind of attention. (…) Telefilm and their team have done an outstanding job preparing us for this momentous occasion and I am truly grateful!’ 

‘It’s been excellent,’ adds Sule the Proverb Detective’s Chukky Ibe. ‘The staff are proactive and intentional. And the cohort they have assembled is fun, fresh, and so unique. I am learning so much from them, and from my peers in the program.’ 

‘Working with the people at Telefilm has been great,’ says Judith Beauregard, producer of Frida, It’s Me. ‘They are eager to help and give us an extra edge. I feel it’s important to them to give us the best possible chances of success at the Annecy Film Festival.’
