The Cartoon Forum has existed since 1990. It dynamised European animation which now maintains an incontestable position in the world market. From a craft industry was born a true cultural industry, diverse and at the cutting edge of technology.
The Cartoon Forum played an essential role in this structuring of the European market, by creating a true network of transborder cooperations, by restoring confidence in the relationship of producers and broadcasters, and by showing that there is sufficient on offer, of quality, within the European Union.
And the results followed. These are considerable. Where previously European animation was in its infancy, it has become the leader on its own territory. The number of productions has very appreciably increased, export sales are among the best of any in the European audiovisual sector, and even the European full length animation film has now truly taken off.
Cartoon Forum has become a rendez-vous impossible to miss. Once a year for three intense days, all the players come together at the Cartoon Forum, to consolidate their commercial links and to meet new interlocutors, be they producers, broadcasters, or investors.
The particular conception of Cartoon Forum makes all this possible. Its framework is at once relaxed, convivial, and highly professional. Its method blends intense work with rare pleasures, such as wine-tasting and rafting. The relaxed atmosphere gives participants the time to negotiate, to share heartfelt enthusiasm for new projects, and to join forces in new challenges.
... all of this is the soul of Cartoon Forum.
