The call for applications to ANIMARKT Pitching 2020 is open!

The ANIMARKT Pitching section is dedicated to short stop-motion animations from around the world at the development stage. The awards include vouchers for production services in Poland or animation equipment, festival distribution or sale of television rights to the finished film.

Since one of the goals of ANIMARKT Stop Motion Forum is to support artists from Central and Eastern Europe, entries from Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Estonia, Germany, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Latvia are treated as priorities.

Finalists qualified for pitching before the presentation can take advantage of consultations regarding script work, production as well as budgeting, project presentation, public speaking, and building the puppet.
