Tenth edition of Animation Production Day to be held 28-29 April 2016 alongside the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film and FMX Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia.
STUTTGART, GERMANY -- The Animation Production Day (APD) will take place April 28-29, 2016 within the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (ITFS) and FMX, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia. For the 10th year, representatives of the German and international animation industry will meet with Germany’s foremost players in animation co-production and financing, to exchange new ideas and formats.
Each year, 30-35 animation projects from film, TV, games, and transmedia are selected to participate in the Animation Production Day. German and international producers may submit their projects until February 22nd. A large number of APD participants successfully find production and financing partners by taking part in the event; nearly one third of participants from recent editions have seen their projects produced.
By participating in the APD, European and international producers and distributors with an interest in the German animation market are given the opportunity to meet the most relevant and established representatives of the country’s animation industry as well as young, upcoming talent with innovative ideas.
The APD has been constantly evolving its program over its ten years of activity. In 2015, the event hosted a special series dedicated to producers and contractors who, instead of showcasing a specific project, were present to network and search for co-production possibilities or to offer special skills and services to potential projects. Titled Producers for Co-Production, this series will again be hosted at the 2016 APD program with further improvements, including a stronger presence from the gaming industry.
Screenings, studio presentations and workshops offered by the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film, and the extensive program of the FMX 2016, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia further offer countless opportunities for participants to inform themselves on the latest industry trends.
