Mexico’s Pixelatl Festival is once again organizing its worthwhile initiative, Ideatoon, to provide Latin American artists working in animation with support and access to resources that can jumpstart their careers and connect them to major producers around the globe.
This year’s call for entries is open to both individual creators and studios who are developing pitches for either episodic series or animated features. To qualify, the team behind the project is required to be from a country in Latin America. A single individual can submit up to four different projects. For each project submitted there is 400 peso fee (approximately Usd$20).
An important element to participate is the project’s pitch bible, which must be in English for the convenience of the international jury selecting the projects that will advance in the program’s multiple stages. Once the project is registered, participants will have access to Ideatoon Bytes, a series of exclusive articles regarding trends and industry insight that will help them better strategize.
