German and international producers can now submit projects for which they are seeking coproduction and financing partners to the 13th Animation Production Days (APD). Animation Production Days is taking place from 1–3 May 2019 in Stuttgart as part of the 26th Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (30 April – 5 May 2019) and FMX – Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Immersive Media (30 April – 3 May 2019).

The online form to submit a project is now available on the APD website. The project submission deadline is 21 February 2019. A total of 45 projects will be selected to participate in APD 2019.

The probability of finding suitable production and financing partners at APD is high. Already, around one third of the projects showcased in previous years have been successfully produced. Projects in an early stage of development particularly benefit from the detailed feedback and advice given by key industry representatives. In pre-planned one-to-one meetings, APD brings together around 170 producers, studios, broadcasters, sales agents, distributors, funding bodies and banks. Once again in 2019, an important part of the programme is the APD Conference where groundbreaking projects will be presented and new trends and business models will be introduced and discussed.

Producers who want to present a project can submit feature film, series, games and transmedia projects at concept, development or production stage. Hybrid formats mixing animation and live action are also eligible. Only one project per company can be submitted. A jury will then select the participants. Producers are informed by 28 February 2019 whether or not it has been accepted. If it has, the registration then becomes effective and the participation fee is due. Producers whose projects are selected for APD participate in the entire APD programme.

Selection criteria are creativity, innovation, potential for brand development, market potential, suitability for and openness to co-production.
