The International Residency for Animated Films is a program organized by Nef Animation and The Royal Abbey of Fontevraud. The International Residency for Animated Films allows authors to immerse themselves one month into their work without caring about material constraints in a peaceful and inspiring atmosphere and enable them to meet and exchange with other artists in residency.

Authors can apply with any personal projects of short, medium or full length animated films. Project of animated film in new or hybrid formats (artistic installation, virtual reality, transmedia, video-mapping, TV series or TV special, animated documentary, etc.) are also accepted.

This residency program receives the financial support of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, through the «Odyssée» program of the Association of Cultural Encounter Centres (ACCR).

Foreign applicants (from any nationality except for French one) who live abroad (any country except for France) have to apply before November 4th, 2019 through the online form, for 2020 residency program.

In 2020, there will be two residency periods : one in April 2020 and one in October 2020.

Among its missions, NEF Animation supports the writing and the creative research in the field of animated film by developping artist residency programs that encourage international mobility. The International Residency for Animated Films is hosted and coproduced by the Royal Abbey of Fontevraud, one of the most important sites of the Loire valley (France).
