A screening and conference with animation professionals
On Thursday 10th October, as part of the masterclasses led by journalist Francis Gavelle, LISAA Animation & Video Games students will have the opportunity to meet the team behind My Life in Versailles, an animated short film which won an award at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival in 2019.
On this occasion, the film will be screened and followed by a question and answer session with Clémence Madeleine-Perdrillat and Nathaniel H’limi, the directors of the animated film, and Lionel Massol, its co-producer.
During this exceptional event, students will be able to interact with the professionals and ask any questions they have about the film, and more broadly, about the animation industry.
“My life in Versailles” wins awards at several festivals
Directed by Clémence Madeleine-Perdrillat and Nathaniel H’limi, My Life in Versailles tells the story of Violette, a shy little girl who becomes an orphan after her parents die in an attack in Paris. She is taken in by her uncle Régis, a cleaner at the Palace of Versailles. But Violette hates him and thinks that he smells, so she decides that she won't utter a single word to him...
"A graphic and literary work where mourning around a collective tragedy, storytelling figures (ogre, labyrinth) and wacky moments come together with sensitivity and elegance," notes Francis Gavelle for FichesDucinema.com.
Produced by Films Grand Huit and Miyu Productions, the animated short film won the Special TV Jury Prize at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, the Young Audience Competition Prize and the Unifrance Young Audience Award at the International Film Festival in Grenoble. The film will also be broadcast on France Télévisions.
