A delegation from the Gran Canaria Film Commission travelled to the French city of Bordeaux to hold twenty professional meetings at the Cartoon Movie Fair, considered the most important event for animation film and the gaming industry.
The gathering at Bordeaux will bring together, from Wednesday 8th March, more than 750 professionals from 35 countries who will see over 50 animation projects created in Europe. Cartoon Movie is a co-production and project presentation forum for animated feature films organised by the Cartoon studios, an American company that produces cartoons for television and which, with the firm of Hanna Barbera, created the animated series of the Flintstones and Scooby Doo.
The aim of the meetings organised by the Gran Canaria Film Commission is for companies in the industry to begin to operate on the island, taking advantage not only of Gran Canaria’s fiscal incentives, but its quality of life, climate and surroundings.
The Island Council (Cabildo) is attending this forum following the plan set up to boost this industry, as it has already had successes with Anima Kitchent, with which it went to the Kids Screen Summit in Miami one month ago, where they held a further 20 meetings with companies that showed an interest in the advantages of setting up business in Gran Canaria.
The next professional gathering for the Gran Canaria Film Commission will be in Paris from 18th to 21st March to attend the Series Mania Festival, considered one of the main events for European TV series to find co-producers.
