film tv & new media / events / OTTAWA - Discover Folimage animation studio at OIAF

Artistic directions, says Folimage founder, Jacques-Rémy Girerd, “have always prevailed over economic parameters. It was in my DNA, I guess.” 


For 36 years, the French animation studio, Folimage has been quietly skirting the boundaries between industry and art by creating some of the most beautiful and original short animation for all manner of audiences. Led by the creative impulses of Girerd (whose feature Raining Cats and Frogs won the Grand Prize for Best Feature Animation at OIAF 04), Folimage has also inspired the creation of a school (the acclaimed, La Poudriere), and developed a highly regarded residence program that has welcomed international animators to come to Folimage to create their own short film. Among the many who’ve participated are such animation luminaries as Michael dudok de wit, Konstantin Bronzit and Regina Pessoa.
