Cartoon Forum - Europe's Animation Pitch-Fest

Cartoon Forum 2020
Cartoon Forum is Europe's biggest TV pitch-fest for animation, and takes place in Toulouse, France, from 14 – 17 September.

If you have an idea for a TV series in your head, Cartoon Forum is the place to pitch it.

The deadline to submit your series project this year is 6 May. So, you have a little more time to sharpen your pencils, fill out some forms - and make your pitch perfect.

About Cartoon Forum

Does it work?

Bi-Lingual Forum
Toulouse, France

Cartoon Forum is officially bi-lingual. Everyone has headsets, and translators will translate your English language pitch into French.  Of course, it helps to parler un peu Franglais, but that's just good manners.

Where and When

When is the deadline?
The deadline to send in your pitch is 6th May 2020.

Animators are storytellers
Here at Animation Apprentice we encourage all our students to pitch ideas for animation, for TV series, for movies - anything that gets you thinking about the creative side of animation.

Becoming an animator is not just about learning your craft, it's about thinking, creating - coming up with ideas. Who knows? Your idea could be the next Peppa Pig, Bob The Builder, or Teletubbies.

For more on the experience of studying at Buckinghamshire New University, come and visit us at one of our Open Days, take a virtual tour of one of our animation studios, check out what our students think of our course, and see why we're ranked in the top 12 creative universities in the UK.
