The Visegrad Animation Forum (VAF) is the leading pitching event for animated film in the Central and Eastern Europe. It is the place where you can meet all the animated film industry and creativity not only from CEE. Professionals – including producers, broadcasters, festival experts, sales agents, distributors, fund representatives and others – come to discuss visions, financing oportunities or strategies for further development.

For the 5th consecutive year the animated projects in development compete in two categories: Short films (single film less than 20 minutes long) and Series / TV Specials (web and TV series of any format and single films over 20 min.).

The winners, newly in both categories, receive financial support of 2,000 EUR for further development. Besides this, the winning TV Series project gains direct access to Cartoon Forum.

Submissions will remain open until 29th January 2017.

Detailed rules you can find here.
