Cartoon CONNECTION Canada 18-21 October 2010 - Ottawa

For those events that animation fans appreciate.

Cartoon CONNECTION Canada 18-21 October 2010 - Ottawa

Postby hcjehg » Thu Sep 02, 2010 1:53 am

Within the framework of MEDIA International, a new programme of the European Union, CARTOON is organising a meeting between European and Canadian animation professionals.

The purpose is to expand the professional network of both sides and to start/amplify some cooperation between Europe and Canada in the animation business at large, be it for services, distribution of features or TV series, co-productions...

The meeting will be divided into 2 parts:

Information sessions on the distinctive markets to understand how each of them works, to analyze the reality and the difficulties to co-produce with Canada with case studies
One-to-one meetings (10 minutes for each meeting) to get to know each other, present new projects or existing series and/or films, and discover projects from the other country.

The meeting will take place in Ottawa (Canada), in the 5-star hotel “Fairmont Château Laurier”.

Cartoon Connection will start 2 days before the Ottawa International Animation Festival with a Welcome Dinner on Monday 18 October, followed by 2 full session days (Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20) and a final morning (Thursday 21) for further meetings (after previous one-to-one meetings).

The Animation Festival of Ottawa will take place from Wednesday 20 to Sunday 24 October. During the Festival and following Cartoon Connection, our Canadian partner organizes the TAC event (Television Animation Conference) where they invite also US speakers and buyers. Participants will have the opportunity to extend their stay and attend the TAC. More information here.
