The premiere European pitching forum for TV projects is open for registration till 29 June.

Created in 1990 with the support of the MEDIA Programme, Cartoon Forum (10-13 September 2018, Toulouse) is a unique event focusing on pitching sessions of pre-selected TV projects, where animation producers can find cross-border partners and speed up financial arrangements.

It allows co-productions to be finalised, pre-buys agreed, negotiation of distribution agreements, options discussed on every type of right, and licensing of secondary rights. 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.

The fee for all participants is 950 EUR (excl. VAT). Register online as a participant until 29 June 2018.

Statistics:

+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.
