 cartoon-forum-2014-520European animation is getting ready to celebrate the 25th edition of Cartoon Forum, the pitching event for animation series, which will be held in the city of Toulouse (23-26 September).

 

84 new projects for animation series will be presented at the event with the aim of fetching interest by more than 850 investors, co-producers and broadcasters to speed up their production.

Along with the presentation of projects, this key event for the European animation sector will host a ceremony for the Cartoon Tributes, the professional awards given to broadcasters, investors/distributors and producers for their contribution to the development of the TV animation industry in Europe.

A total of 15 companies and personalities are among the nominees for these awards, for which France and the UK have a leading role.

Producers Léon Perahia and Robin Lyons are nominated, in recognition of their participation in all 25 editions of the Cartoon Forum event, and Submarine  studio (Netherlands) completes the list for Best European Producer.

 

The category for Broadcaster of the Year reflects the interest of public broadcasters in European animation.

 

Nominees include Germany's KiKA, Italy's RAI Fiction and Switzerland's Schweizer Radio und Fernsehen (SRF). French pay-TV operator CANAL+ and Disney Channel (USA-France) complete the short-list in this category.

 

Two French companies and two British companies will compete for Investor/Distributor of the Year.

 

The French nominees are Dandelooo, a young creative animation production and distribution company, and Mediatoon Distribution, with over 1,500 hours of youth programming in its library.

 

The British nominees are HIT Entertainment, one of the world's leading preschool entertainment companies which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, and Serious Lunch, a new venture led by Genevieve Dexter.

WDR Mediagroup, a commercial arm of the German regional public broadcaster WDR, rounds up the list of nominees for Investor/Distributor of the Year.
