CEE Animation Workshop Announces 2021 Projects and Participants


    PRAGUE: The CEE Animation Workshop has selected three feature-length animated films and six TV projects to participate in its 2021 edition, which begins on 22 February.

    The year-long workshop received applications from 14 low production capacity countries, with 45 percent of them for animated series. Because of the increased interest in that field, the workshop accepted six series instead of the usual four series.

    The 2021 workshop will be held online, from February to December with four one-week training modules and the possibility of adding a residential module depending on the COVID-19 situation.
