Created in 1999, Cartoon Movie  is a promotional event which aims to create synergy between producers, investors and distributers of full-length animated films. For the 6th consecutive year, the event will take place in Lyon at the Cité Centre de Congrès, from the 5th to the 7th March. This event is part of the 4th edition of  “On cartoon dans le Grand Lyon”, which will take place from the 22nd February to the 9th March 2014. Over the course of the two week period, the best European animated cinema will be shown in cinemas in Greater Lyon and the surrounding area for the enjoyment of the public.

Over the three days allocated to Cartoon Movie, European producers will have the opportunity to present their animation projects for potential buyers, with the aim of negotiating funding and finding producers and distributers. Participants can enjoy the convivial atmosphere and take time to negotiate, widen their professional network and commit to new challenges alongside partners. The event will bring together 700 participants from 40 countries, 200 buyers, including 120 distributers, and will feature 56 projects in 4 four categories.

At the fringes of the event, Cartoon Games will be taking place on the 5th March, which will be the opportunity for the animation and games industries to link up. Throughout the day-long event there will be 15 minute individual interviews between producers of animated films and video games companies taking place – the event is dedicated to professionals from both fields and is organised in collaboration with the Imaginove cluster.
