Co-Production and Financing Market

The carefully pre-planned one-to-one meetings have been the heart of Animation Production Days for 15 years. In addition to concrete negotiations on the projects, they also involve detailed feedback from key decision-makers and experts so that the projects can be successfully developed further in line with the requirements of the market.

There are two categories of one-to-one meetings at APD.

Meetings of the Co-Production Market:

Producers of the selected projects meet studios, VFX and games producers who are looking for projects to participate in – either as co-producers or as service providers. The goal is to network European and international production partners whose know-how and profile fit the planned projects.

The Meetings of the Financing Market:

Producers* of the selected projects meet potential financing partners, i.e. broadcasters, streamers, distributors, funding institutions, banks and other investors.

– Producers with selected projects take part in the meetings of the Co-Production and Financing Market.

– Investors and financiers attend the meetings of the Financing Market.

– Studios and producers without their own project participate in the meetings of the Co-Production Market.

  • From the project submission/registration documents, an e-catalogue is compiled with all the information on the selected projects and participating companies.
  • The catalogue will be sent to all participants about two weeks before the event starts.
  • The Financing Market meetings are planned by the APD team. Participants choose who they would like to meet based on the e-catalogue. Depending on availability and profile, the APD team schedules the desired meetings. These meetings will be stored in the Online Meeting Scheduler.
  • A week before the event all accredited participants receive their access data to the Online Meeting Scheduler.
    Here, the meetings of the Co-Production Market can be planned by the participants themselves, as well as the meeting slots still available within the framework of the Financing Market.
