The General Assembly of Animation in Europe, the federation of European Animation Producer Associations, elected its board for the next two years during its annual meeting at MIFA in Annecy last week. The following candidates, who bring together an extensive range of TV, movie, production and distribution experience, were elected to the board: Philippe Alessandri (Watch Next Media – France) as Chairman, Annemie Degryse (Lumiere Publishing/ Lunanime – Belgium) as Treasurer and Moe Honan (Moetion Films – Ireland), Dirk Beinhold (Akkord Film Produktion GmbH – Germany) and Tom van Waveren (CAKE – Netherlands) will serve as Vice Chairs.

Before the official theatrical release, young and old fans could experience the cheeky little raven at two film festivals and join in the excitement of the big treasure hunt which began in May at ITFS Festival in Stuttgart. This week, Raven met the Golden Sparrow at the film festival by the same name in Gera and Erfurt where they greeted an enthusiastic audience. Little Raven will fly across the screens all over Germany starting December 12th.
We are very happy to welcome Angela at Akkord Film to oversee all our physical production work. She most recently supervised the production of Wes Anderson’s stop-motion indie ISLE OF DOGS and was part of the production team of Jan Lachauer, Jakob Schuh and Bin-Han To’s REVOLTING RHYMES. Both were nominated for an Academy Award. She also supervised MAYA THE BEE for German studio M.A.R.K. 13. We are proud to have her on board for our expanding international productions in the coming years!
