The Arab Animation Forum will take place from April 30 until May 3, 2019 in the framework of this years Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS). The Forum will start off with a production workshop given by the Danish producer Peter Smith from Studio Tumblehead (Viborg).
With the Arab Animation Forum, the ITFS and the Robert Bosch Stiftung are seeking to connect young animation directors and artists from the Arab World with upcoming producers from Germany aiming to support joint animated film projects. The Forum therefore presents a point of contact equally important for producers as well as for film-makers, who shall be linked by the encounter in order to initiate new co-production teams.
The winning project is automatically nominated for the Film Prize of the Robert Bosch Stiftung for International Cooperation. Additionally, there will be further meetings, workshops, consultations and matching sessions with experienced animation producers and directors on the agenda.
