Cartoon Forum: Deadline 8 May

Many of our students at Escape Studios have an idea for an animated TV series in development - though not at all of them know it yet. 

Our animation students are not just technicians, they are creators, brainstorming new ideas and concepts in animation, searching for the next Peppa Pig or Charlie and Lola.

But you can't do it alone - animation is a team sport.  A successful TV series needs co-producers, financing, broadcasters and new media partners.  One great place to find all these resources is the annual Cartoon Forum in Toulouse, France. The deadline to apply for this year's forum is 8 May.

What is Cartoon Forum?
Cartoon Forum is Europe's biggest TV pitch-fest for animation. If you have a project in your head that you would like to submit to producers, business angels and broadcasters, Cartoon Forum is the place to be.  It is a European pitching and co-pro event for TV animation

Participants
Cartoon Forum has over 800 participants from 35 countries, including 250 buyers, and offers hard-to-beat networking opportunities.

How it works
According to Cartoon Movie, over 600 TV series have been financed for a budget of over €2 billion since its creation in 1990.

Toulouse, France
Where and When
Cartoon Forum takes place from 16-19 Sept 2019 in Toulouse, France.

Deadline 8 May
Submit your project by 8 May and you will get a chance to pitch it at the next Cartoon Forum in front of 800 animation professionals.

Check the Cartoon Forum application page with all the details and the link to the online form.
