The ‘Work in Progress’ series enables producers and directors to present animated feature films, short films, series, or cross-media projects to an international audience of professionals and give them a first insight into brand new and interesting projects. Professionals are given a platform to find new cooperation and financing partners or investment opportunities.
In 25-minutes each (including a Q&A session), selected high-quality projects will be presented which are at the stage ‘in concept’ to ‘in production’. In their presentations, the producers and directors will not only talk about their projects, but also show first visual material and, if available, trailers.
