Welcome to the 4th edition of Cartoon Springboard!

Welcome to the 4th edition of Cartoon Springboard!


Cartoon Springboard started on Tuesday 4 December in Valenciennes, France. Experts, young talents, producers, animation professionals and 24 promising animation projects landed in the Serre Numérique where the well-known Rubika School has its headquarters.

Cartoon Springboard is an event dedicated to young talents with an animation project where they can get professional advice to enter the animation industry.
+140 participants have registered to the event, and among them more than 40 animation professionals are here to scout for new projects and to help these young artists build more consistent programmes.

17 experts are present to guide, provide help and give advice to the young talents from 16 differents countries.

Cartoon did a survey among young talents who attended since the 1st edition to find out that among the 67 % of projects which replied to our questionnaire are in very good progress with producers and funding institutions to develop further. All in all 10 Cartoon Springboard projects were pitched at the Cartoon Forum and the Cartoon Movie.

We hope the same success to this year’s projects!

We finished this colorful day in a friendly atmosphere with our traditional Welcome Dinner.
