13th Animation Production Days
Animation Production Days (APD) is the major co-production and financing market in Germany focused exclusively on animation. It takes place every year as part of the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film and the FMX – Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Immersive Media. At APD the most important national and international market players negotiate cooperations for more than 40 new animation projects in exclusive one-on-one meetings.
The section “Producers for Co-Production” offers an additional coproduction platform for producers, service producers and production service providers only. The programme is rounded off with the APD Conference in which high-profile speakers discuss new trends and developments in the animation industry.

APD 2018 was held on April 26-27 in Stuttgart. During two days, 170 participants from 26 countries have been discussing new animation projects in the co-production and financing market. This year, 48 highly promising projects with a total production value of around 170 million Euros were selected by the jury from a total of 71 applications to participate in APD. In over 700 pre-planned one-to-one meetings the participating producers, studios, world sales agents, representatives from broadcasters, funders and investors discussed the new material. The range of projects extended from TV series, films and games for children to comedy and science fiction for teenage and adult audiences.
