UK animations join 18th edition of Cartoon Movie

Three UK projects were among the 56 selected for the 18th edition of Cartoon Movie, which took place between 1 and 4 March in Lyon, France:

  • Layla & Majnun by Touchwood Animation (UK) and Najafi Bros Studio (Turkey) 
  • Loving Vincent by Trademark Films (UK) and Breakthru Productions (Poland) 
  • Night of the Trampires by Trampires (UK), Blue Dolphin Films (UK) and Animatrix (UK) 

The two-day pitching and co-production forum for animated feature films receives funding through Creative Europe’s Access to Markets scheme. During the event, producers had the opportunity to pitch their films to potential financial partners, find co-producers and gather interest from international distributors, sales agents and game companies.
