How it works

The keynotes

  • 12 keynotes spread over two and half days
  • Inter­na­tion­al ani­ma­tion experts with var­i­ous background
  • Case stud­ies, in-depth analy­sis, ground-break­ing topics

The pitch­ing sessions

Select­ed pro­duc­ers will be allo­cat­ed a 40-minute session:

  • 20 min­utes to present their core con­cept and how the key cross­me­dia ele­ments will be devel­oped to work across your cho­sen plat­forms (min. 2 plat­forms, oth­er than TV and film or the­atri­cal release, should be the focus dur­ing the pitch).
  • 20 min­utes for a pan­el of inter­na­tion­al experts (from TV, licens­ing, investor-financ­ing, dis­tri­b­u­tion, gam­ing, e‑publishing etc) to give mod­er­at­ed feed­back on the pitch and project, its trans­me­dia poten­tial and strat­e­gy, as well as help­ful advice to move the project forward.

Oth­er par­tic­i­pants will also attend the pitch­ing sessions.


An expe­ri­enced and neu­tral ani­ma­tion con­sul­tant will help pro­duc­ers pre­pare their pre­sen­ta­tions before­hand and will also be present dur­ing the pitch­ing ses­sion, to intro­duce the pro­duc­ers and act as mod­er­a­tor dur­ing the ques­tions & answers.
