Animation Production Days (APDs), a joint venture of ITFS and FMX, is a curated business platform for the European and international animation industry, taking place for the sixteenth time in Stuttgart from May 4 – 6, 2022.

In exclusive and carefully planned one-to-one meetings, producers from over 20 countries can evaluate the market potential of their projects in the fields of film, TV series, games, cross- and transmedia with potential co-production partners as well as broadcasters, streamers, distributors, funding institutions and investors.

At APD, around 160 participants from more than 20 countries negotiate collaborations for around 50 selected projects in around 800 pre-planned one-to-one meetings each year.

Another important part of the programme is the APD Conference. In practice-oriented case studies, technological innovations or new sales and financing strategies for animation projects will be presented and discussed. In the second part of the Conference, broadcasters and distributors will present their current programme needs and future programme strategies.

The conference is open to all ITFS accredited professionals. In addition, APD offers various networking events and roundtables with industry participants from the partner events ITFS and FMX.
