MEDIA Markets & Networks - Cartoon Forum and Series Mania

Cartoon Forum 2021 is planned to be held on site in Toulouse, France from 20 - 23 September with social distancing measures and enforcements.  

Created in 1990, Cartoon Forum 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. A new category called Short Pitch sessions has been created where several projects will be pitched in 10 minutes.

DEADLINE 10th May (midnight). Apply here.
