History of APD

Animation Production Days was launched in 2007 by the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film and FMX – Conference on Animation, Effects, Games and Immersive Media and will take place for the 14th time in 2020.

Since its launch in 2007 with 12 projects and 35 participants, the event has grown continuously. For APD 2019, 50 projects were selected. 165 participants from 23 countries discussed financing strategies and cooperations in around 800 individual discussions.

The projects presented at APD show a high success rate. Around one third of the 400 projects presented at APD in the past years have now been successfully produced.
