Created in 1999, Cartoon Movie is neither a fair nor a festival, but rather a co-production forum for European animated feature films. For two intense days, European producers have the opportunity to present their animation projects to all potential buyers in order to negotiate financing, to find partners and to interest distributors. All of this is happening in a very relaxed and convivial atmosphere… the human touch is the soul of Cartoon Movie!
The successful 2010 edition was attended by more than 630 participants from 32 countries, including 180 investors, of which 90 distributors. 51 feature film projects were pitched at the event, be they in concept, in development, in production or completed films.
The steady growth of stereoscopic 3D, the presentation of new films by well-known directors (Ari Folman, Patrice Leconte, Sylvain Chomet) and the high quality of the projects pitched were the highlights of this 12th edition. Have a look at the TV reports, the key facts or the pictures gallery.
The 12th edition will take place from Wednesday 2nd to Friday 4th March 2011 in Lyon (Rhône-Alpes, France).
