Cartoon Movie, the pitch-fest for animated films, is now taking applications.  The Deadline to submit a feature film project to Cartoon Movie is 17 November 2021

Cartoon Movie takes place in Bordeaux from 8-10 March 2022, and is now open for applications.

About Cartoon Movie
If have an idea for an animated feature film project you'd like to get off the ground, you can submit it to Cartoon Movie.  The Deadline to submit a feature film project to Cartoon Movie is 17 November 2021

Industry professionals
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, producers, distributors & sales agents. Even if you don't succeed in securing finance, you will get an invaluable crash course in how the animation movie business works. 

Pitching Ideas
Cartoon Movie 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
Animators are film-makers as well as animators, and many are developing their own ideas for original films and TV Series.  Financing new projects isn't easy, but the annual Cartoon Movie event in France is a great place to begin.

How to enter
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)

The Deadline to submit a feature film project to Cartoon Movie 2022 is 17 November 2021
