Animation Filmmakers: Two important deadlines are almost here for the 2014 Annecy International Film Festival and Market. You have only a few more days to enter your finished film into the Festival and your short, television, feature and/or transmedia ideas to the 2014 MIFA Pitch Session.
The deadline is February 7th. This includes short films, TV episodes, student films and commercials. March 15th is the deadline for feature films. It’s free to enter and if selected, the director is invited to the festival. Click here for more information.
Another deadline is coming up even faster – February 3rd! Are you developing a short or TV series? Do you feel like you don’t know what to do now? Do you need to find partners and get guidance about what to do next? Then you need to enter into the MIFA Pitch Session. The International Animation Film Market (MIFA) is held side by side with the Festival, efficiently mixing art with commerce. This unique professional trade fair is where all the players from the animation industry come together for three days of networking with potential business partners and international broadcasters and distributors.
The MIFA Pitch Sessions are held during
this market and offer a great opportunity to projects that are not yet
made. If your project is selected you
will have the chance to pitch in front of a group of leading animation professionals. You will also receive support and
professional dialogue about your project and a free accreditation to the MIFA,
where you can mix and mingle with 300 buyers, distributors and investors. If you are currently developing a feature or
transmedia project, you can breath a little easier as your deadline is February 21st. Once again, it is free to enter and a great
opportunity to bring your idea to the next level by getting fantastic exposure
at a leading international market. Submit a Project to the MIFA: Click Here.
