Download the full brochure of the 2016 edition

Cartoon Connection combines half a day of conferences with key actors from Europe and Canada and approximately 900 one-to-one meetings between European, Canadian and Latin American animation professionals.

Participants come with an animation project or programme to seek out partners, co-producers and distributors for their shows.

170 animation professionals usually attend each year (15 broadcasters, animation, service production houses, distributors).

In 2015, 30% of the projects presented by European companies either signed a contract with a Canadian company or were in active discussions to do so. 100% of responding participants say that Cartoon Connection has opened doors on future business collaborations.

"It is so useful to meet new people
of the cartoon-
scene and to have
new connections. 
And maybe there
will be a new
project in the end..."
Franziska Guderian, ZDF (Germany)

"As a B 2 B based
conference, this is
second to none
in the world.
The companies
come prepared,
and it is now a
regular fixture
on our calendar."
James Bennett, zerply.com (Canada)
