Unfortunately yes. The Cartoon Movie is not a “à la carte” market like other ones (with stands) but rather a global “menu” concept of 2 intense days.

To be able to present a new project, a producer must obtain from a market partner, whether broadcaster, investor or distributor (regardless of the distribution platform), a short letter showing interest and sponsorship for the project (not necessary for projects in concept).
It should be interest only, not a firm commitment to fund or distribute the project.
Yes, we require from the producers to comply with the deadlines set by the organization in order to enable the Cartoon Movie to take place in the best possible conditions and to give the best chance for projects to succeed.
The only flexibility that we give is the deadline for the project submission. If a producer needs 2 or 3 extra days, the project will be considered as "submitted" if requested in writing to CARTOON before the deadline.
The buyers have explicitly asked not to be “flooded” by information or appointment requests before the Cartoon Movie. That’s why CARTOON does not release buyers’ contact details to producers.
Presenting a new project in front of a large audience (from 25 to 250 persons, depending on the interest expressed for the project) isn’t an easy task! Especially when the final goal is to convince the auditors to invest in it.
In order to help the producers with this crucial mission, CARTOON has decided to assign to each of them a neutral, experienced animation professional acting as a moderator.
The role of these chairpersons is to help the producers to prepare their presentation the weeks before the Cartoon Movie and to assist them during the business session itself. Their neutral position allows them to introduce in a positive way the production team as well as the developed project and to deal with potential questions from the public. It is the role of the producers however to defend their project. The producers and the chairpersons agree on a presentation scenario, the producers remaining master of their project.
We have noticed that this way of working helps tremendously the producers and enhance the professional aspect of the project presentations.
As a prelude to each half-day of work, CARTOON will invite all the participants to the Croissant & Coffee Shows. This is when CARTOON will screen the trailers of the projects to be discussed that day. The aim of these daily screening is to inform participants and encourage other financial partners to take part in the producers’ business sessions.
