Cartoon Connection Canada

the bridge for animation content between Europe, Canada & Latin America

This 3-day meeting is intended to:

  • initiate and establish lasting professional relationships between Canadian & European professionals
  • improve knowledge of the different markets
  • create new opportunities to find co-producing partners on new projects
  • encourage cooperation and circulation of animation works between both markets

Panels to understand mutual markets

Professional workshops with broadcasters, producers and distributors will highlight both the Canadian and the European animation markets from a creative, co-production and distribution perspective.

Top experimented experts and broadcasters will explain up-to-date topics and detail ways to enter the audiovisual market in both continents.

Thousand one-to-one meetings

This meeting will also allow Canadian producers attending Cartoon Connection to meet European professionals during one-to-one meetings.

  • You prepare an e-presentation of your company, presenting your expertise (specialities, teasers, new projects developed, technique) and specifying what you are looking for (what kind of cooperation, for which reasons)
  • You discover the e-presentations of all participants
  • You select online the professionals you want to meet
  • You meet on site the professionals you have selected and you have a 20-minute speed dating to convince and find partners for further cooperation works

In total, over a thousand of one-to-one meetings are organized during the 3 days, which increases your opportunities to finance your new projects.

Springboard to Cartoon Forum and Cartoon Movie

Should co-productions between Canada and Europe be started thanks to Cartoon Connection, then Canadian producers will be entitled to participate at the 2 biggest co-production animation markets in the world (Cartoon Forum for TV series and Cartoon Movie for animated features).

Networking events

During these 3 days, common lunches, party dinners, sightseeing tours and fantastic karaoke nights are organized in order to give you more convivial and relaxed opportunities to build human and lasting contacts.
