An Evening with Guillermo del Toro at the Annecy Festival

At the Annecy Festival, where the animation industry and those who dream of being part of it gathered last June, Guillermo del Toro's presence is revered as that of a god. The master from Guadalajara, winner of the Golden Globe both in live-action for directing The Shape of Water (2018) and in animation for his victory with Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (2023), was the one who made it possible for this edition of the foremost animated film event to focus on Mexico.
