Created in 1999, Cartoon Movie is an intense and efficient pitching event intended to create a synergy between producers, investors and distributors of feature-length animation films.
Producers have the opportunity to pitch their project to all potential financial partners gathered in the same room, in order to find co-producers, speed up financing and negotiate deals with distributors, sales agents and game companies.
Since 1990, over 229 films pitched at Cartoon Movie, with a total budget of 1.5 billion EUR, have secured their financing and have been released.
Among them, many hits such as: Sammy’s Adventures, Niko & the Way to the Stars, Zarafa, The Pirates, Ernest & Celestine, Tad Jones, Animals United, Kirikou, Belleville Rendez-Vous, A Cat in Paris, Le Tableau, Dragon Hunters, Chico & Rita, Santa’s Apprentice, The Three Robbers…
A special feature of Cartoon Movie is that it is possible to present projects at their different stages:
- Projects in concept
- Projects in development
- Films in production
- Sneak preview

Therefore the whole industrial network can take part in the development of the film, which increases tenfold the producer’s chances for success.

- 750 PARTICIPANTS from 40 countries
- 200 BUYERS incl. 120 distributors
