It aims to identify authentic animation stories told by female creators coming from emerging national film and audio-visual animation communities in Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. Creators will be offered access to international opportunities at the 2022 edition of the Annecy International Animation Film Festival.

The programme will run 11-18 June 2022 and includes participating in the Women in Animation World Summit and attending a series of virtual mentorship sessions with internationally acclaimed experts.
