Event Description

Next Lab is an initiative that integrates a workshop, an event and a digital platform; created and organized by Paramotion Films (creators and organizers of Weird Market and Quirino Awards). For a third consecutive year, the initiative received the support of the Community of Madrid through the Council for Culture, Tourism, and Sport as a main sponsor, aiming to discover new talents and promote the production of more technically and narratively advanced animation projects. This third edition also received financial support from the Institute for Cinematography and Audiovisual Arts (ICAA), as part of the Recovery, Transformation, and Resilience Plan advanced by the European Union, with additional support provided by the Ministry of Culture, DeAPlaneta Entertainment, and the Municipal Government of Madrid, and collaboration from Enisa, Annecy Festival, and Weird Market.
