Eurimages Co-production Development Award Nominees 2021
Following a call for proposals launched in June 2020, the Council of Europe's Eurimages Fund has selected seven co-production markets around the world to present the Eurimages Co-Production Development Prize in 2021, including the one of Cartoon Movie. This cash-prize of 20,000 € has been created to promote the Fund’s role in encouraging international animated co-production from the initial stages of a project. The project has to be designed from the outset as an international co-production for cinema release and initiated by a lead producer based in a Eurimages country willing to co-operate with other partners internationally. The lead producer should aim to involve at least one other producer from a Eurimages country. The award, which takes the form of a non-reimbursable subsidy, must be used by the producers to cover development expenses of the animation project.
The Eurimages Co-production Development Award will be awarded on Thursday 11 March at 14:15, during the online edition of Cartoon Movie 2021.
