Elsa Keslassy International Correspondent Mediawan Kids & Family is unveiling a raft of prestige animated feature projects at the Annecy Film Festival, including “Meow-woof” by Louis Clichy (“Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion”) and “Twisted” by Lino DiSalvo (“Playmobil”).

Emmanuel Jacomet, who worked for over a decade alongside Aton Soumache and Dimitri Rassam on high profile IP’s such as “The Little Prince,” “Miraculous Ladybug” and “Playmobil,” took over the film division of Mediawan Kids & Family under a year ago with the ambition to develop a mix of mainstream franchise-based projects and auteur-driven 2D titles.

The executive, who lived in Los Angeles for a number of years, said also he aims at bringing together European and American talent and sensibilities on projects that are personal, yet boast an international appeal.

Many of the filmmakers in business with the banner have a dual culture. Clichy, for instance, is French but previously worked for Pixar on “Up” and “Wall-E” before directing “Asterix” movies; while DiSalvo spent 16 years at Disney, but understands the European culture due to his Italian heritage and made his directorial debut with “Playmobil.” “For the last 12 years, I’ve seen how we’ve been able to have a significant role in the independent market and become one of the only players able to deliver upscale animated films for indie distributors, whether with big IP’s such as ‘The Little Prince,’ or ‘Miraculous,’ which have big budgets, or smaller arthouse films like ‘Mune,’ ‘Little Vampire’ and ‘Little Nicholas,'” said Jacomet.
