The premiere European pitching forum for TV projects is open for registration till 29 June.

Created in 1990 with the support of the MEDIA Programme, Cartoon Forum (10-13 September 2018, Toulouse) is a unique event focusing on pitching sessions of pre-selected TV projects, where animation producers can find cross-border partners and speed up financial arrangements.

It allows co-productions to be finalised, pre-buys agreed, negotiation of distribution agreements, options discussed on every type of right, and licensing of secondary rights. Τhe pitching sessions are the core element of the Cartoon Forum; each project is presented in 30 minutes to all potential partners gathered in the same room.
