Lyon is welcoming Cartoon Movie for the second time
25 February 2010
Now in its 12th edition, Cartoon Movie will gather together producers, financiers and distributors of European animation feature films in Lyon (France).
In moving to Greater Lyon, Cartoon Movie has chosen a city of images looking towards the future. With Imaginove, its Cluster of the moving image, Lyon now offers the first pooling of companies and jobs in France in the interactive sectors of video games, cinema, audiovisual, animation and multimedia.
Started in 1999, with the support of the MEDIA Programme of the European Union, Cartoon Movie is a co-production forum for feature-length animation, mainly for the cinema..
Last year, Cartoon Movie took place in Lyon for the first time and it was a total success, both for the level of participation – which rose by 20% – as well as for the high quality of projects presented.
As the birthplace of cinema and situated in a region that is very active in the audiovisual sector, Lyon is the perfect setting to welcome this event. For the 12th edition of Cartoon Movie, animation professionals will therefore meet again in Lyon from 3rd to 5th March 2010 to discover the latest film projects.
