And here we go for the 27th Cartoon Forum!
Cartoon Forum started on Wednesday 13 September with the presentations of Marc Vandeweyer, our General Director and our main partners in the presence of Carole Delga, President of the Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditérannée Region and Geraldine Byrne Nason, Irish Ambassador to France. Together they officially launched 27th Cartoon Forum. This is a record year for Cartoon Forum which goes from strength to strength. This year 22 countries will be presenting their 80 projects to participants from 38 countries which include 950 producers, investors, distributors, buyers, SVoD platforms, ... The number of participants increased by 10% in 2 years and by 45% in only 5 years.
Marc Vandeweyer presented the "Spotlight on Ireland". For the first time in its existence, Cartoon Forum will be putting the spotlight on a specific country during the event: Ireland.
As the Cartoon Forum doesn’t move anymore from a country to another and is established in Toulouse, we think that it is time now to enhance the creativity and the vitality of the studios outside France.
Marc also introduced a special project called "SUPRIISE!". It is the first animated series with 40 millions episodes. The participants will discover it on Thursday afternoon.
We thank our partners and wish to all participants a great Cartoon Forum 2016!
