EVENTS - Cartoon Connection Canada

This year marked the third edition of  Cartoon Connection Canada.(1)  This event is organized by the Brussels non-profit European association known as Cartoon.

This years Connection was expanded to include game developers and publishers as well as Latin American animation companies.  The aim was to facilitate more cooperation between Europe, Canada, and Latin America producers.

This was done by dividing the meetings into two parts.  The first being information sessions about the "distinctive markets and case studies to analyze the reality and the difficulties to co-produce with Europe/Canada." (2)  The second was "one-to-one meetings...to present your new projects or existing series (for cooperation or co-production."(2)

If co-productions between Canada and Europe are signed, then Canadian producers will be allowed to participate in, the two biggest co-production animation markets in Europe (Cartoon Forum for TV series and Cartoon Movie for animated features.
