It was a French animation studio, now it becomes a cultural centre and residency. Ciclic Animation opens its doors in September 2015.
Ciclic Animation, a laboratory for research and experimentation for the animated film, will open in the fall of 2015 in the city of Vendome, and the region Centre-Val de Loire (Loir-et-Cher), with an avant premiere of new Folimage animation feature Phantom Boy.
After fifteen years of existence, Ciclic established this animation residency within former military stables being renovated; it aims to ground a cultural facility in France for both animation professionals and the general public.
Ciclic's animation productions include Beach Flags by Sarah Seidan, and The Banquet of the Concubine by Xefang Wei (photo)
