As it prepares to hold a fully in-person edition, Weird Market (formerly known as 3D Wire Market) has released its full program of pitch presentations and other events.
The major European market will hold its 13th edition in Segovia, Spain from September 24 to October 2. Its catalog this year totals 200 projects across animation, video games, transmedia, comics, and board games. Nineteen of those will be pitched onsite. (Note: the animated films and series, and the video games, all have a Spanish or Portuguese producer.)
Among the projects being presented is Nayola, a feature about the Angolan civil war directed by veteran animation filmmaker José Miguel Ribeiro; we covered its work-in-progress presentation at Annecy this year. Another is the short film Paradise Buffet, the directorial debut of Héctor Zafra, who animated on two well received Spanish films: Mum’s the Word (Soy una tumba) and Birdboy: The Forgotten Children.
