Created in 1999, Cartoon Movie is an intense and efficient pitching event intended to create a synergy between producers, investors and distributors of feature-length animation films.
Cartoon Movie is neither a fair nor a festival, but rather a pitching & co-pro 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, 365 films found financing, representing a total budget of 2.4 billion EUR.
Producers have the opportunity to pitch their project to all potential financial partners gathered in the same room, in order to find co-producers, speed up financing and negotiate deals with distributors, sales agents and game companies.
Renowned directors and authors have trusted Cartoon Movie and presented their film, including: Michel Ocelot, Peter Lord, Ari Folman, Sylvain Chomet, Jean-François Laguionie, Jacques-Rémy Girerd, Patrice Leconte, Enzo d’Alò, Terry Gilliam, Jannik Hastrup, Mathias Malzieu, Enki Bilal, Tomm Moore, Benjamin Renner
