The tenth edition of the CEE Animation Forum will take place in a hybrid format starting tomorrow. It is Eastern Europe’s leading regional pitching, financing, and co-production event.
This year’s program will host 49 animated projects in four categories: feature films, series/tv specials, shorts, and student films. Meanwhile, 33 projects have been selected to participate in this year’s main pitching competition. Additionally, five projects will be pitched out of competition and a further 11 will participate in the CEE Animation Workshop training program.
CEE received nearly 130 submissions from 34 countries this year, which the event says is a strong indicator of an overall rise in animation production in the region. Among the countries with the largest presence are France (7), Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland (5), Germany (4), Slovakia (3), and Slovenia (2). Notably, this year’s field features a majority of women filmmakers (61%).
