Pitching sessions

The pitching sessions will take place every day in 3 studios simultaneously. The aim of the pitching session is to enable you to present your project to all the broadcasters, financial partners and new platform representatives interested in your project, at once.

Duration
Your session will last no more than 20 mn + 5 mn at the beginning and at the end of the presentation to let people get in and out of the room (30 mn in total). Save some time at the end of the presentation for questions or feedback from the floor (the chairperson will help you with this part).

To be well prepared
Think ahead of time about:

  • your project’s concept with the description of the characters and the storylines, 
  • your project’s graphics, 
  • the target audience, 
  • the negotiating rights, 
  • the production business plan, 
  • the budget, 
  • the state of advancement of the financial arrangements, 
  • very important: what you expect from the people attending your presentation. 


Compulsory rehearsals for new producers
Producers who pitch for the first time at Cartoon Forum will have to arrive in Toulouse on Monday 11 September by 2pm to rehearse the presentation with the chairperson. We will communicate you online (Check-list) the exact time of your rehearsal early September. Please inform your co-producers, if any. Note that it does not replace the technical meeting.

Technical Meeting
In addition, to be fully prepared for your presentation and to avoid any technical problems, you will have a technical meeting on the day of your presentation in your allocated studio. The exact time will be communicated to you online early September (Check-list).

List of Attendees
We will scan the badges of the people entering the studio. The list of attendees will be given to your chairperson when the pitching session starts. You will receive a final copy after your presentation at the Extra Time corner and it will also be sent to you by email at the end of your pitching day.
