Visegrad Animation Forum

Visegrad Animation Forum is mainly a “market access platform“ for animation professionals from Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). It tries to attract new partners, producers, broadcasters, and film distributors. It also tries to find ways of financing both short, animated films and TV series. Another important objective is to improve the practical abilities of animated film authors and producers and to seek and offer connections among film professionals, authors and television producers and distributors from different countries. The modules prepared by the organisers focus on the three key elements of every project: good story assets, a realistic development plan and structuring an effective pitch. The industry initiative’s primary goal is to regenerate CEE’s animation industry.
