In half a century, French animation has risen to 3rd place in the world, behind the USA and Japan. As the original inventors of a technique that was industrialized on the other side of the Atlantic, French artists and technicians were able to make a name for themselves through sheer perseverance and creativity. Resisting the American giant, embracing technological developments and convincing public authorities to support it, French animation embodies the success of a cultural model based on diversity. "French animation, that other cinema" will retrace the odyssey of the men and women of this little-known cinema.
