Cartoon Movie is neither a fair nor a festival, but rather a pitching & co-pro forum for animated feature films.
For two days, producers have the opportunity to pitch their film project in order to speed up financing, find co-producers and interest international distributors.
Since its creation in 1999, 275 films found financing, representing a total budget of 1.9 billion EUR.

 

 

 

Cartoon Movie, the European pitching event for animation films, took place in Bordeaux with 850 participants (+14% compared to 2016) from 41 different countries, with 43 game companies and 221 buyers including 125 distributors and sales agents. Organised by CARTOON, the 19th edition of this professional forum was the ideal platform to assess the current state of European animation whilst boosting 55 new projects featuring a wide variety of genres and production techniques.

BUZZ FILMS AND TRENDS
Out of the 55 projects selected with very disparate budgets (from 3 to 13 million euros), 17 of them are in concept, 26 in development, 9 in production and 3 in sneak preview. The variety of countries producing animated films is still growing. This year, Georgia, Ukraine
and Israel pitched a project for the first time at Cartoon Movie. This edition also benefited from a strong territorial anchoring with 7 projects out of 55 developed in Bordeaux and Angoulême under the aegis of the Pôle Image Magelis. During these two days, the pitching sessions got a full house. The 17 projects presented as projects in concept created great enthusiasm like „The Nazis, my Father and Me“ (Folivari) by Remy Schaepman, a new project of the successful producer Didier Brunner, „Two Caravans“ (Blue Zoo Animation) based on the best-selling novel of Marina Lewycka, „Unicorn Wars“ (Schmuby Productions), „Single Mom in Korea“ (Marmitafilms) – a new film by Jung Henin („Approved for Adoption“), „Princess Dragon“ (Ankama Animations) by Anthony Roux & Jean-Jacques Denis („Dofus – book 1“), … With 35 projects out of the 55 selected, family comedies and adventure films for children remain the focus of Cartoon Movie projects.

The 10 projects which attracted the most participants to the pitching sessions:

Der Preis ging nach Hamburg, an Emely Christians von der Ulysses Filmproduktion, die in Kooperation mit Studio Rakete (Hamburg) und Koproduzenten in Luxemburg, Belgien und Irland den Film „Ooops!

Der Film handelt von herzzerreißend komischen Kreaturen, die das Boot verpasst haben, als Noah lossegelte und trotz aller Gegensätzlichkeiten zum Team werden müssen , um Sturm und Flut zu überleben.

Schon auf dem letzten Filmfest in Cannes war der Film eine Sensation, weil er in jedes Land der Erde verkauft werden konnte. Die in Lyon stark vertretene französische Delegation honorierte damit auch den Erfolg des Films in den französischen Kinos, wo bis jetzt mehr als  550 000 Besucher kamen.
