Alain Bidard

Alain Bidard has worked as an Animation film director in Martinique for the last seventeen (17) years since graduating, in 1999, from SUPINFOCOM, one of the best 3D animation schools in Europe — his graduation film, “Pixies”, was nominated at many European festivals.

Between 2000 and 2015, Alain directed several short films, documentaries and live-action films that were nominated internationally and received several awards.

In 2015, Alain Bidard released his first animation feature film — and the first animation feature ever made in the Caribbean — “Battledream Chronicle”. It is an afro-futuristic feature film that has become one of the most awarded French animation feature films with twenty (20) awards and more than seventy (70) nominations worldwide.
