Cartoon Forum 2012 confirmed for Toulouse
20 Sep 2011 by Admin
Cartoon Forum will be based in Toulouse, France for its 2012 event, with whispers that it may be settling there for the foreseeable future.
The pitching and buying event has not yet confirmed the measure, with Cartoon Forum Managing Director Marc Vandeweyer describing the potential plans as “not signed” and “just a negotiation”. If the touted negotiations do come to fruition, it is believed Cartoon Forum would be signing a deal to stay in Toulouse for the next three years, and reassessing the move at the end of this period.
Toulouse has a strong tradition of animation and is considered the third country in the world in terms of animation production. France itself had the biggest presence at this year’s event in terms of pitches, with 22 of the projects (33 per cent) coming from the country.
