Car­toon­Next is both a sem­i­nar and a pitch event ded­i­cat­ed to the new oppor­tu­ni­ties cre­at­ed by tech­no­log­i­cal inno­va­tions, new modes of con­tent con­sump­tion and new audio­vi­su­al formats.

A for­mu­la to touch both on busi­ness & creativity

Keynotes from renowned experts from var­i­ous domains will start the dis­cus­sion thanks to case stud­ies, in-depth ana­lyzes and con­tra­dic­to­ry debates on inno­v­a­tive sub­jects. It will allow pro­fes­sion­als to keep abreast of devel­op­ments in the ani­ma­tion sector.

Pitch­ing ses­sions are the oppor­tu­ni­ty for pro­duc­ers to devel­op exist­ing projects or still in con­cept towards IPs that are ful­ly cross-media, and for par­tic­i­pants to learn along.

The Euro­pean dimension

The pan­el of speak­ers as well as the selec­tion of pitched projects will come from a wide range of Euro­pean countries.
