Τhe pitching sessions are the core element of the Cartoon Forum; each project is presented in 30 minutes to all potential partners gathered in the same room.

A new category has been created: Short Pitch sessions, where several projects will be pitched in 10 minutes. Almost all European broadcasters and major media investment groups attend the Cartoon Forum each year to get a sneak preview of the latest animation projects for television and pick the future hits.

The registration for Cartoon Forum 2018 is now open for:

  • Producers (with or without project), directors, animation professionals
  • Investors, sales agents, distributors, broadcasters, new media representatives, gaming companies, TV, SACD authors, composers, etc.

+950 sector professionals: the place to meet and network, +80 new TV projects to discover: the list of selected projects will be online mid-June

Since 1990: 734 series found financing, representing a total budget of 2.5 billion EUR. On average, more than one project out of three presented at Cartoon Forum secures financing and enters into production.
