The ACE Animation Special workshop is for ACE Producers Members or experienced producers that plan to diversify their activities to include animation production. The workshop is aimed at producers who want to diversify their activities to include and/or deepen their knowledge of developing and producing long form/feature film animation production for an international audience (cinema, broadcast or streaming). 

16 to 18 producers will be selected for the workshop, preferably with a long form/feature length animation project at concept stage. Focusing primarily on the creative and financial aspects of feature and longform animation production, the ACE Animation Special will offer sessions on animatic story development, international production workflows, the creative dynamics of animation production, financing strategies and international distribution. The workshop will also include one or more sessions on physical line production as well as case studies on completed animation projects. Group sessions, plenary sessions and one to one meetings will together build a workshop where producers learn from each other’s experiences and those of key industry guests.   

ACE Producers is an exclusive network of experienced independent film producers from Europe and beyond. Membership of the network is based on professionalism, mutual trust, collaborative working and openness to new ideas. A fundamental aim of ACE Producers is to encourage and enable international co-productions. 

Selected producers can apply to Telefilm’s International Promotion Program for financial support to attend this event if they meet the eligibility criteria.
