Somewhat by accident I came across an article about a film pitch and conference festival in France. Cartoon Movie is an event created to bring producers, investors and distributors together. This will mean all sides make valuable connections enabling them to hopefully collaborate on the next big feature film.
It aims to be a hub for Europe but it's great to see that internationally renowned American companies are coming over to find out what Europe has to offer. One of these being DreamWorks animation who to sent Shelley Page - their Head of International Outreach.
Euronews manged to get an interview with her to see what she thinks of the ideas on offer. Read the interview here.
It's great that such influential companies don't rule out ideas from smaller businesses and individuals. Now we know about this event maybe our own Daniel Waterman will head out there next year!
