CARTOON Movie is a two-day pitching and co-production forum for animated feature films. For two days, producers have the opportunity to pitch their film project in order to speed up financing, find co-producers and interest international distributors. Since its creation in 1999, 333 films found financing, representing a total budget of 2.2 billion EUR. It receives support funding through MEDIA's Access to Markets scheme.
