Submit Your Film Idea to Cartoon Movie

Our student animators at Bucks New Uni are film-makers as well as animators, and many are developing their own ideas for original films and TV Series.

Of course, financing idea projects isn't easy, but the annual Cartoon Movie event in France is a good place to begin. The deadline to submit your project to Cartoon Movie is 20 November.

If have an idea for an animated feature film project you'd like to get off the ground, why not submit it to Cartoon Movie?  The Deadline to submit a feature film project to Cartoon Movie is 20 November 2019. 

If your project gets selected, you will be able to pitch it to around 1,000 animation and industry professionals from forty countries.  Present at Cartoon Movie are hundreds of buyers, distributors & sales agents.

What is Cartoon Movie?
It is a pitching & co-production forum for animated feature films. There are two days of pitching sessions, 60 projects to be presented in 4 categories:
  • In Concept
  • In Development
  • In Production or 
  • Completed Film
Your project will most likely be submitted In Concept.

Submitting a project
First, you must prepare all the required elements as listed on the official website. This includes artwork, a synopsis (ideally a script, but it's not vital), and a statement of what your film will be all about.
Stop! No need to speak French!

Submit "in concept"
Since you are likely pitching your idea "in Concept", this means you only really need a great idea, plus a little development. If you can get some nice stills cut together, or even a bit of animation, that is enough.

English and French
The conference is bi-lingual, you can pitch in English, and there are translators everywhere.

Submit a project
To submit your project, you will need to access the official Online Form: Go to My Cartoon (tab on top right of the page) and login or create an account. Click to My Projects > Cartoon Movie > Submit a new project (if you need help, send an email to info@cartoon-media.eu)

What is the deadline?
20 November 2019 to submit your project.

Cartoon Movie 2020 takes place from 3-5 March 2020 in Bordeaux, France.
