Our friend and champion for gender equity, Corinne Kouper, was recently named Ecran Total’s 2021 Personality of the Year Award for her impact on French animation in her roles as co-president & co-founder of Les Femmes s’Animent, board member of ECAS and of course, as Co-Founder and SVP of Production & Development of leading European animation studio TeamTO!

“TeamTO is first and foremost a studio that produces some of the finest animation in the industry. However, we also want to be a company that can impact the lives of our community in a positive way by creating new opportunities and more diversity, being more inclusive, working against unfair practices and protecting the environment,” she recently told Animation Magazine. “It is an honor to be recognized by Ecran Total for this work that has been a part of our mission since the beginning.”

Along with launching various initiatives including creating mentorship programs supporting first-time women filmmakers, co-founding the first non-profit, free animation training program in France and focusing on creating more environmentally-friendly animation studios, Corinne has been extremely vocal about working with the Latin American region.
