Animation Production Day open for submissions!


Animation Production Day (APD), jointly organised by ITFS and FMX, is the most important business platform for animation projects in Germany. It is taking place from 26–27 April 2018 at L-Bank Stuttgart and brings together around 150 producers, broadcasters, distributors, sales agents and investors in a series of pre-planned one-to-one meetings. Producers can submit animation projects in the areas of film, TV series, mobile content, games, crossmedia and transmedia until the deadline of February 20, 2018. Hybrid formats which mix animation and live-action can also be submitted. A total of around 45 projects will be selected for participation in APD 2018.

For the Producers for Co-Production programme studios and service producers that operate as contractors rather than co-producers can apply as well. They can establish new business contacts and initiate new cooperations in individual discussions.

The E-Form for project submission and accreditation can be found here.

A key part of the programme is once again the APD Conference, which offers a platform for presentations of outstanding projects and the introduction of new business models and market trends. The APD Conference is open to all accredited FMX participants.  Image credits: © Animation Production Day, Reiner Pfisterer, 2017
