The Agency for Economic development of Gran Canaria (SPEGC) through the Gran Canaria Film Commission (GCFC) participates this week in the first online version of Kidscreen Summit 2021, the most important event for the children’s entertainment industry, with the aim of promoting “Gran Canaria, the Island for animation” and its advantages for the animation industry at an international level.
Kidscreen Summit 2021, is held for the first time entirely in online format and will run from February 8th to March 5th. The first week of February from the 8 th to the -12th will be the time when the children’s entertainment industry has meetings between companies and professionals and in the remaining weeks events and conferences dedicated to the latest trends in the international animation industry will take place.
This summit will bring together nearly 2,000 attendees from more than 54 countries, including content creators, distributors, industry executives, professionals and producers from the animation industry from around the world. Gran Canaria attends this market again to continue promoting the opportunities that the Island offers for the animation industry.
This year the Gran Canaria Film Commission will have its own “meeting suite”, supporting the local studios Ánima, Birdland, Koyi and Futurum Kids, where each of them will have a meeting room. As usual, the GCCF also attends the summit under the umbrella of Canary Islands Film together with other Canary Islands entities dedicated to attracting investment. in professional meetings with different professionals in the sector.
The differential factor is stated by the solid relationship between Kidscreen and Gran Canaria: after several years participating in the event, Gran Canaria once again attends the star forum of the American market with a prominent position, with its own Suite and delegation and with the will to give learn about new fiscal and production opportunities. This strategy of linking with the main animation design and production markets has been particularly satisfactory for the local industry: up to 7 studios and 150 professionals have chosen the island as their base of operations, from where they produce content of international scope.
Without a doubt, Kidscreen Summit is a perfect showcase for the promotion of “Gran Canaria the island for animation”.
