New Registration Record!
The call for Latin American projects for animated feature films and TV series in development to take part in Animation! Pitching Sessions has broken the record this year, with 180 registrations from all Latin America. This 2017 edition has surpassed last year’s record by more than fifty percent.
The successful response includes projects for feature films and TV series from 14 countries, such as Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, Cuba and Dominican Republic. Countries such as Mexico and Brazil have doubled their registrations in both categories.
Representatives of the MIFA Market at the Annecy Festival (France) are beginning the selection process of the finalists that will pitch their projects in Animation! at Ventana Sur.
The finalists will be announced on the third week of October.
However, the first finalist for Animation! Pitching Sessions has already been selected: It’s the feature film project Grimalkin, by Mexican creator Sant Arellano. The project was granted the Animation! Award during the animation and videogames festival Pixelatl, at Cuernavaca.
American expert Heather Kenyon will take part in Animation! once again, joining the project representatives on their practice days, giving feedback so they can improve their presentations and achieve the previously set objectives in order to carry the production forward.
