Call for Projects 2021 Now Open!

Projects for the 15th Animation Production Days (APD) can be submitted from today. The most important co-production and financing platform in the German-speaking region for international animation projects will be taking place from 4 – 7 May 2021 as an online or hybrid event. 

To enable all participants to make plans as soon as possible, we’ve decided to hold the one-to-one meetings in the co-production and financing market online. We already gained good experience of this last year which we can now build on. But we know that the industry is really missing meeting each other face-to-face. Hence we are adopting a hybrid concept for the conference and roundtables and – should the situation permit – we will have on-site participation on a smaller scale alongside the event’s online components.

All information on project submission is now available on the APD website. Producers have until 22 February 2021 to submit their film, TV-series, mobile content, games, cross and transmedia projects. Hybrid formats mixing animation with live action are also eligible.

Production companies and studios from the animation, games, VR and VFX sectors who do not wish to present their own projects but instead are looking for projects in which they can become involved as co-producers or service providers can apply for an accreditation to the Producers for Co-Production programme. Registration for this is also via the online form. Further information is available on the APD website.
