Event Description

CEE Animation is an umbrella of regional activities for promotion and development of the animation and its talents in more than 20 countries of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). The objective of CEE Animation is to raise the competencies of professionals and give them equal access to financing and the markets as their Western peers, by fostering co-production and sustainable business models.

Each year, the organisers invite almost 200 film professionals to follow the competition between the most promising European animation projects. The exceptions were the past two years, which were transferred to an online environment due to the pandemic situation. As a result of new proven technical possibilities, the jubilee event will take place in a hybrid format in Liberec, Czech Republic.

NB. Event dates TBC
