Animation!

Fostering the animated industry from the region

Animation! is an exclusive space for animation, a unique opportunity for producers from the region and for professionals from other parts of the world looking to connect with Latin America.

Projects seeking for strategic alliances, networking activities, round tables, workgroups with international specialists and pitching training sessions, are some of the key elements in this section.

Latin American animation continues to arouse great interest in new territories and markets. At Animation!, our goals are to accompany that movement by opening new paths and removing obstacles and foster professionals from the region encouraging strategic alliances, developing their potential with the help of experts from around the world, and promoting local talent in other markets.

Alen From Patagonia, by Dante Di Giovanni (Argentina)

After five years of successful collaboration with the Annecy International Animation Film Festival and its market MIFA, both in France and the region arose the shared will to generate a space to develop the female creators’ potential, in an industry in which few women have access to the direction role.

Carrying on the close cooperative bond between Latin America and France, and in alliance with the Institut Français d’Argentine, Animation! launches the Special Mentoring Program for animation projects led by women, with the goal of carrying out actions in favor of gender equality, encouraging co-productions and pursuing the global dissemination of Latin American talent.

All Latin American series and feature film projects that were registered in the 2020 Animation! Pitching Sessions and accredit a woman in the role of director qualified for this program.

Five projects were selected by an international jury and were granted access to a virtual production, script and pitch training given by three French experts.
