The CEE Animation Forum, the largest industry and pitching platform for animated projects in development in the CEE region, is going to be held online from October 6 to 8, 2020. The event is usually held annually in the Czech Republic in parallel to the International Festival of Animated Films Anifim, but due to the ongoing global situation, the organizers decided to make it online this year.
Even with some adjustments to the new format, the focus remains on the pitching of animated projects in development. As in previous years, the new compilation of debuting filmmakers CEE Animation Talents will be introduced. A special emphasis is placed on 1:1 industry meetings, implementing a new online meeting platform.
Furthermore, 28 films in development will participate in the pitching competition in four categories: short films, series / TV specials, feature films and a new section of XR projects for the first time in the eight-year tradition of the event.
Moreover, a selection of six short films made by promising young filmmakers from the CEE region will be officially introduced. The focus is on extraordinary talents whose work promises successful future careers. The compilation is each year made by festival directors from the CEE region and presented together at numerous animated film festivals around the world.
The online edition will bring together producers, directors, animators, script advisors, broadcasters, distributors, representatives of market events, festivals, trainings or film funds.
