More than nine hundred delegates gathered at the 20th Cartoon Movie animation forum in Bordeaux last week.
Initiated in 1999 with the help of Creative Europe -the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, Cartoon Movie has obtained huge positive results: more than 301 animated features presented since the start have found their financing, which represents a production investment of €2 billion.
Most productions are now created digitally, but a few still use hand drawn animation as a means of achieving a special ambience on screen.
Cartoon movie is part of an annual series of animation events, four in France, one in Canada, organised by CARTOON, an international non-profit association based in Brussels. CARTOON’s remit is to support the animation industry by organising various events through the year dedicated to animation professionals.
