160 animation professionals at Cartoon Connection Canada
160 professionals from Canada, Europe, US, Japan, Mexico and Costa Rica attended Quebec for this 7th edition of Cartoon Connection from 24 to 27 October.
This morning, 11 key broadcasters coming from Europe and Canada presented their editorial policies in animation: acquisitions, coproductions, ... followed by a focus on Costa Rica.
This afternoon, we started the one-to-one meetings. 1050 meetings will take place in total.
Cartoon did a survey among European producers who attended last year and found out that out of the 78 projects presented at the one-to-one meetings, 34 of them (43.59%) are either signed or in active discussions with a Canadian partner. It's a great achievement and excellent reason to continue this yearly meeting.
Moreover, any European-Canadian partnership resulting from the Connection one-to-one meetings allows both producers to submit their project to the biggest coproduction platforms in Europe: Cartoon Forum and Cartoon Movie.
We hope to have the same good results this year and even more!
