Animation projects can now be submitted to APD (part of Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film) with a deadline of 27 February 2017.

From 4 to 5 May 2017, Animation Production Day (APD) is taking place as part of the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film and the FMX, International Conference on Animation, Effects, VR, Games and Transmedia.

 For the eleventh time representatives from the German and international animation industry will be negotiating new ideas and formats at the most important coproduction and financing market for animation projects in Germany.

 A total of 35 projects (film, television series, mobile content, games, crossmedia and transmedia projects) will be selected to participate in APD 2017.

Around a third of projects presented in previous years have now been successfully produced. Each year in pre- arranged, one-to-one meetings, APD brings together around 130 producers, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, funding bodies and banks.

 Because APD is being supported for the first time in 2017 by the Creative Europe MEDIA programme, the APD Talent Programme can be further expanded. Thirteen places are available for German and European newcomers who want to present their own project at APD.

 Cooperation with the international Hamburg Animation Award is also part of supporting new talent at APD. The winner of the Hamburg Animation Award will be presenting her new project at APD with support from Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein.

A special offer is available to delegations from EU countries with lower audiovisual production capacities who are participating in APD for the first time. Producers included in such a delegation can benefit from a one-off 50% reduction in the regular APD participation fee.

 

  Up to three German animation series projects showcased at APD can directly qualify to participate in the Cartoon Forum (12 to 15 September 2017 in Toulouse). In addition, a German feature film animation can now qualify for Cartoon Movie (March 2018).

 

As a complement to the "German Alliances in Animation" event being held by the German Producers Alliance, APD is inviting bids for a free accreditation from the best German-Irish or German-British coproduction project. And as part of the cooperation with the MIPjunior showcase, the British project "Bebods" is being presented at APD 2017.

 

The project submission forms and all info (fees, guidelines etc.) are now available for download on the APD website.

 

Deadline for all submissions:  27 February 2017 (early bird registration: 3 February 2017)
