La Fête du Cinéma d’Animation or the Celebration of Animated Films is a unique initiative with the goal of promoting animated films in France and abroad. An homage to Charles-Émile Reynaud, who is credited with being the first person to project animated films, the event takes place around October 28 every year. This date corresponds to the first public projection of animated strips in the world at Musée Grévin (Paris) on October 28, 1892.
In partnership with the Association Française du Cinéma d’Animation (AFCA), the French Institute in India (IFI) and the Lycée Français International de Mumbai (LFIM), we will be screening animated films throughout October 2019 to celebrate the 18th Edition of the Celebration of Animated Films.

Un homme est mort by Olivier Cossu (66′)
In post-world war 2 France, the reconstruction effort leads to over exploitation of the working class. Labor unions demand better working conditions and decent salaries. During a demonstration in Brest, the police shoots at the crowd wherein Edouard Mazé is killed. Will this death stir prove to be a catalyst for change?
