CARTOON is an international non-profit association based in Brussels. CARTOON’s remit is to support the European animation industry and for more than 20 years, it has received financial support from the MEDIA Programme of the European Union to run its activities, which concentrate on 4 areas:
4 training seminars each year for European professionals in the industry (about 100 participants per session), dealing with specialised subjects affecting the development of the skills and trade involved in animation;
a co-production forum for animated (mainly television) series. The Cartoon Forum (about 750 participants) takes place annually in September and has no fixed location (it is in a different country every year);
a co-production forum for feature-length animation, mainly for the cinema. Cartoon Movie (about 600 participants) takes place every year in March in Lyon, France;
a new programme intended to explore ways of reinforcing cooperation between EU and non EU animation professionals.
CARTOON, formed in 1988, is run by Marc Vandeweyer with an Annual General Meeting and a Board of Directors.
