The Portugal Film Commission will be present at the Cartoon Forum 2021, in Toulouse (France), between September 20 and 23.
On this edition of the Cartoon Forum, 84 projects will be presented to about 1000 broadcasters, investors, and other potential partners from 40 countries, making it one of the most important international events in the field of animation.
Five Portuguese projects are part of the pre-selected list, in this edition marked by the Spotlight on Portugal, which celebrates our country highlighting its role in the development of the animation sector.
Within this celebration, two events will take place: a Spotlight Happy Hour on 22 September at 5.30pm and a Farewell Dinner: Portuguese Evening on 23 September at 7.30pm. These initiatives take to the Cartoon Forum a little bit of what Portugal has to offer, besides the promotion of what makes our country a safe bet for audiovisual production internationally, and are the result of a partnership between the Cartoon Forum, the Portugal Film Commission and the Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual, with the support of the Portuguese Association of Animation Producers.
