Cartoon Movie is organised with the support of the MEDIA Programme of the European Union and is specially developed for European animation film projects. The conditions for participation are as follows:
The project must be:
|Character design||2 pts|
|Music Composition||1 pt|
|Chief Decorator||1 pt|
|Computer backgrounds||1 pt|
|50% of expenses for animation
|50 % of the colouring in Europe||2 pts|
A letter of interest from a distributor, TV-channel, sales agent, new platform distributor or cinema exhibitor must go with every project.
The project or film that the producer submits to CARTOON must be in one of the following 4 categories: project in concept, project in development, film in production or completed film. The producer must respect the admission requirements and the deadlines, and must provide the required documents as mentionned in the vade-mecum.
A project may be submitted to Cartoon Movie a number of times, but in a different category each time (the same project may not be submitted a second time in the same category).
On the basis of information provided in the presentation documents, Cartoon’s selection committee reserves itself the right to determine the European feature film status of the projects received and their status of progress before accepting them to Cartoon Movie.
The selection criteria upon which CARTOON’s Selection Committee will make its decision are based on the compliance with the admission requirements mentioned above and the global objectives of the MEDIA Programme, which are as follows:
The Selection Committee will therefore take into consideration, among other things:
In order to meet the objectives of the MEDIA Programme, and notably the cultural and geographical diversity, CARTOON will pay particular attention to projects and films from countries that have a low capacity of audiovisual production and to those from the new member states.
CARTOON’s Selection Committee has the right to refuse a project or a film, or to change the project or film to another category, on the basis of the application documents submitted by the producer.
CARTOON’s selection committee reserves itself the right to limit the amount of projects accepted to Cartoon Movie in order to ensure that all projects presented will have a fair and equal chance of finding potential partners (maximum 2 projects per company can be accepted).
In the case CARTOON receives an excessive amount of projects, selection will be made according to the above specifications and to the overall strength of the project.
Producers will be informed of the Selection Committee’s decision. The Selection Committee’s decision is final. In case of dispute, the producers are entitled to request a written justification from the Selection Committee.
