Guillaume Calop started his career at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. He then moved to Los Angeles to participate in launching the online publishing group Animation World Network (awn.com). Back in France, he then worked for 7 years at the internet branch of CANAL+ group. In 2009, together with his partner Pierre-Emmanuel Fleurantin, they imagined a film festival in the mountains where they grew up, the ski resort of Les Arcs. In only a few years, the Les Arcs Film Festival has become a major marketplace and event for European cinema.
Guillaume Calop will talk about his experience with organising a “green” film festival and will highlight Les Arcs Film Festival’s future plans.
