GERMAN ALLIANCES IN ANIMATION FOCUSING ON UK AND IRELAND
For the 5th time, the German animation industry will meet on 13 September at Cartoon Forum Toulouse for the kick-off event GERMAN ALLIANCES IN ANIMATION, which in 2016 will be focusing on the UK and Ireland. Both countries will be represented by a local industry expert (for the UK, Oliver Hyatt, co-founder and Creative Director of Blue-Zoo Animation, Chairman of Animation UK; for Ireland: Andrew Fitzpatrick, Chairman of Monster! Entertainment), who will give insight into their country’s animation industry and present approaches for cooperation within European co-productions. Following the presentations, all participants are invited to get together over drinks and discuss trends of the industry and possible future cooperations. The event is supported and sponsored by five German regional film funds (FilmFernsehFonds Bayern, MFG Baden-Württemberg, Filmförderung Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein, Mitteldeutsche Medienförderung, Nordmedia) and Creative Europe. It is hosted by the German Producers Alliance and organized through Freebird Pictures. More information is available from Andrea Schiefer (Freebird Pictures) GAA2016@produzentenallianz.de.
