CEE Public TV Animation Acquisition and Co-production Managers

Their Realities, Dreams and Nightmares

To finance their projects (animation series/films, etc.), independent producers crucially depend on the support from their national broadcasters and from national and international funds. The widest possible interest from television channels from other countries is a great help too. Broadcasters’ involvement is a key indicator for all other partners (including national and international audiovisual funds) that it is possible to trust that the project will hopefully be successfully produced and that it will reach its viewers.

A line-up of representatives of national broadcasters from Central and Eastern Europe will share how CEE national TV broadcasters can and do support independent animated works, how they co-operate with producers from their own country and with those from other countries, as well as what works for them and what does not.
