Ozi, Voice of the Forest
Our studio can’t wait to share more about the upcoming animated feature Ozi, Voice of the Forest this year. In this epic adventure set in the rainforest, Ozi, a teenage orangutan, sets out to find her parents in a voyage of discovery.
Supported by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way Productions, and Multi Academy-Award-winning producer, Mike Medavoy, the feature aims to raise awareness around the issues our globe’s rainforests face considering growing levels of deforestation, and how this affects the ecosystems within.

Annecy Festival 2023
Last year, Annecy was a whirlwind for Mikros Animation! Our team was stationed at a sweet new booth, The Candy Lab, which was themed wall-to-wall with confections. Our leadership spoke on several panels during the festival including the Women In Animation 2022 World Summit, Unleashing Talents and Creation: A Key Issue for Animation, and Intellectual Property, A Strategic Issue for Animation Studios.
Annecy also saw an exclusive first look at the upcoming animated feature film, Ozi: Voice of the Forest which CartoonBrew named one of the most impressive projects to be featured at the festival.
Here’s hoping that this year will be even better than the last! Stay tuned for more information on our presence in 2023.
Industry events, making meaningful connections, fundraisers in our communities, and celebrating milestones – we’re excited to see and share all of the exciting things that our global studios will be up to this year.
