Better times for German animation projects – Animation Production Day cooperates with CARTOON

Creating a better initial position for German animated series on the European and international market: This is the objective of the cooperation that has just been set up between Animation Production Day and CARTOON – European Association of Animation Film. On the Animation Production Day (May 7-8, 2015, hosted by Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (ITFS) and FMX, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia) up to three of the presented series projects can qualify directly for a participation on Cartoon Forum (September 15-18, 2015, Toulouse).  

One of the APD’s key advantages lies in the possibility to present a wide range of animation projects, including films, series, games, mobile content and transmedia. Cartoon Forum is a pitching and co-production forum for animated TV projects – and thus particularly interesting for German animated series. In addition, the APD pitching offers the opportunity to present animation projects at a very early stage. Qualification for the Cartoon Forum – where a higher stage of development is required – enables further development and optimal preparation of the chosen projects for the event in Toulouse.  
“This two-stage model accelerates the often tedious search for the appropriate production, broadcasting and distributing partners“, says Dittmar Lumpp, Managing Director Organisation/Finances of ITFS organizer Film- und Medienfestival gGmbH (FMF). Prof. Ulrich Wegenast, Managing Director Programme FMF, adds: “Moreover the model makes access easier to the global market for German series projects with international potential.” Prof. Andreas Hykade, Program Consultant FMX and Head of Animation at Institute of Animation, Visual Effects and Digital Postproduction at the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, is convinced: “The APD`s great advantage in particular is the broad range of the projects. Representatives of all relevant areas meet here – that is what makes the APD unique. In this sense the APD is a necessary extension to all events already existing.”

“CARTOON is very excited about this new collaboration,” says Marc Vandeweyer, General Director CARTOON,“and has no doubt that the quality of projects submitted to the APD will draw out more German animation projects that can demonstrate their international scope at the Cartoon Forum.”
APD is the only German market event focused exclusively on animation. It is hosted by the Stuttgart Festival of Animated Film (ITFS) and FMX, Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Transmedia, both major events in their respective fields that take place during the same week in spring. It is organized by the Film- and Medienfestival gGmbH and Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg. At the APD German and international producers present their projects from the areas of film, series, games and transmedia to broadcasters, distributors, sales agents, funders and investors in individually tailored one-to-one meetings.
