The Best of Annecy festival 2023

MEET presents The Best of Annecy festival 2023. The event, dedicated to animation film and digital creativity, will be held in the MEET Teather on July 12 .

The Best of Annecy is a review that will travel the world for a year to tell the best of the kermesse. MEET had the honor of being chosen as the first stop in the review, less than a month before its conclusion.
The Annecy Festival, with its 60-year history and represented by more than 100 countries, has established itself as an event of worldwide resonance dedicated to animation and capable of presenting and discussing styles, techniques and experiments that anticipate new trends. With the screening of thousands of films, shorts and features, Annecy has again this year confirmed itself as the hub of world animation.
The best of it all will be told through a selection of short films and a virtual reality experience. The event will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a chance to view with viewers the work “BLACK HOLE MUSEUM + BODY BROWSER” by Wen-Chi Su.

Wen-Chi Su’s VR experience explores how to imagine and perceive gravity through dance movement, sound and light. Wen-Chi’s artistic project and interest in gravity originated during her residency at CERN in Geneva in 2016 where she conducted research in areas such as cosmogony, gravitational physics and astrophysics. Combining an immersive virtual reality environment with an ambisonic sound system Wen-Chi Su explores the relationship between the body, dance and the force of gravity and aspects of performing arts in the VR environment supported by the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in New York (US).

The initiative has the patronage of the Institut français Milano.
