Let's start the 29th Cartoon Forum!
Cartoon Forum started on Tuesday 11 September with the presentations of Marc Vandeweyer, our General Director and our main partners: Francis Grass, Deputy Mayor of Toulouse Responsible of Culture, Dominique Salomon, Vice-President of the Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditerranée Region responsible of Culture and Heritage, and Vincent Leclerc, Director of TV and New Media Content at CNC. Together, they officially launched the 29th Cartoon Forum.
This year 22 countries will be presenting their 83 projects to participants from 38 countries, which include 1000 producers, investors, distributors, buyers and SVoD/VoD platforms.
Anttu Harlin, one of the founding members of Finnanimation, presented the "Spotlight on Finland". For the third time, Cartoon Forum will be putting the spotlight on a specific country during the event: Finland. As Cartoon Forum is now established in Toulouse (France - Occitanie, Pyrénées-Méditerranée) since 2012, it seemed to us right, each year, to put the spotlight on the animation of a “country of honour”, in order to keep the focus on the animation of a country, as was the case when the Cartoon Forum used to travel across Europe. Discover the skills in animation of Finland.
We thank all our partners and wish to our participants a great Cartoon Forum 2018!
