Business Platform for the International Animation Industry

23 – 25 April, 2024, Stuttgart


Animation Production Days (APD), a joint venture of ITFS and FMX, is a curated business platform for the European and international animation industry, taking place for the eighteenth time in Stuttgart from 23-25 April 2024.

In exclusive and carefully planned one-to-one meetings, producers 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 170 participants from more than 20 countries negotiate collaborations for around 50 selected projects in around 900 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 financing strategies for animation projects will be presented and discussed. 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.
