The 4-Day Online Programme Draws to a Successful Close

The 15th edition of Animation Production Days (APD), which once again this year took place entirely online, ended yesterday at noon. APD 2021 saw 167 participants from 25 countries register, with 51 selected animation projects and potential collaborations discussed in over 700 individually scheduled video meetings. In addition to German broadcasters such as ZDF, KiKA, SWR, MDR, WDR and Super RTL, Disney, Netflix, Amazon and Warner Media were also involved alongside numerous international companies including ARTE, France Télévisions, RAI, the BBC, Canal+, Nickelodeon, RTVE, YLE and many international distributors.

A big thank you goes to the 167 registered participants from 25 countries!

Once again this year, the cooperation between APD and CARTOON – the European Association of Animation has led to two German TV series projects receiving a ‘wild card’ to be included directly in the selection of projects for the Cartoon Forum international TV pitching event which will be held in September 2021 in Toulouse. This year, the wild card winners are “Lambs” by Studio FILM BILDER from Stuttgart and “Bugs and Guns” by the Berlin-based production company Wolkenlenker.
