Baden-Württemberg is Germany‘s top location for animation and visual effects. No other federal state has such a high density of animation and VFX studios. The creative professionals in these studios have received numerous internationally renowned prizes - including Oscars, Emmy Awards, Annie Awards, VES Awards and the Deutscher Computerspielpreis Award.


Behind this remarkable success is the work of the Animation Media Cluster of the Stuttgart Region (AMCRS).The network, initiated by the MFG Baden- Württemberg, consists of more than 30 VFX service providers, animation studios, games and interactive studios, as well as universities and academies, connecting many small businesses and regional freelancers in Baden-Württemberg.


It groups more than 1000 professionals, depending on the project situation. The focus of the AMCRS lies in the development and expansion of technical and administrative structures. These concentrate the capacities in Baden-Württemberg, something which, in turn, is of great relevance for international film production companies.


Furthermore, Baden-Württemberg plays a decisive role in animation and media due to its excellent training offer. Every year, alumni from the region establish themselves in the film industry. The aim of the MFG Film Funding and the work of the AMCRS is to strengthen the film industry in Baden-Württemberg for these talents.
