The VAF is an international platform with the goal of supporting film professionals while helping them to develop their animation projects with experienced international professionals, and to help them create an international network.
The VAF pitching competition is open for animated projects in development. There are two categories:
- – Short films (single film less than 20 minutes long)
- – Series and TV Specials (web and TV series of any format and single films over 20 min.)
In order to prepare a public pitching session for the submitted projects selected, we propose a support program of several workshops. Each participating team (producer and author) will get a unique opportunity for in-depth consultation (20 minutes) with an experienced professional on their story concept, project development, financial plan, market or festival strategy, possible coproduction workflow separation etc.
For the first time, a pitch for animated feature films will be organized. In this pilot edition, five VAF board members will choose the best project from their country (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, and Slovenia). After being pitched to different European distributors, 1:1 meetings with key representatives of the animation industry will be followed.
The VAF Třeboň has grown into a platform where producers can build networks among themselves and with CEE region broadcasters, present new talents and their creative work for EU producers and help find financing and distribution for their projects. In addition to the main pitching competition for short films and Series / TV Specials, the three-day programme offers a number of presentations, debates and screenings. Animation professionals at the forum can acquire skills and know-how from foreign experts from the field as well as useful contacts that will contribute to making their animated project a success.
