CEE Animation Workshop 2023: Call for Entries Is Open

    Creators from All European Countries Welcome to Apply!

    Submissions are open for the fifth edition of the CEE Animation Workshop, a year-long training programme for developing projects and enhancing skills. Filmmakers in the field of animation from all EU member countries will be guided by renowned producers and animation script consultants. The deadline for submissions is 24 October 2022.

    The Workshop is tailor-made to suit the needs of producers and their creative teams with animated projects of any format in development while also being open to a limited number of producers without projects seeking to build a long-term strategy for their company.

    Led by acclaimed industry professionals who will closely follow and mentor all kinds of projects (shorts, TV, feature-length, hybrid and XR), the participants will be given a chance to advance their scripts, train in the art of pitching, get access to inspirational lectures and deepen their knowledge in various topics regarding animation production.

    The 2023 edition of the CEE Animation Workshop will consist of 4 modules; 2 modules will be executed online, and 2 modules will be held on-site, starting with an on-site module in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in February 2023 and the third module taking place in Bratislava, Slovakia in August 2023. The Workshop will finish with the final presentation and a pitch to a carefully selected group of industry players. After the completion of the Workshop, participants will be able to take advantage of the CEE Animation network and gain privileged access to various industry and market events in the EU.

    ‘We are excited to start the fifth edition by building on great experiences and strong foundations from the last four years of training and bringing some fresh new features. We are looking forward to welcoming established producers Tonje Skar Reiersen and Corinne Destombes as main group leaders in the team and to balancing the online and on-site modules, with 2 on-site weeks in 2023,’ declares Saša Bach, the managing director of the CEE Animation Workshop.

    Besides the already mentioned producers Tonje Skar Reiersen (Mikrofilm, Norway) and Corinne Destombes (Folimage, France), groups will also be led by script consultants and the well-known CEE Animation Workshop collaborators, Phil Parker (United Kingdom) and Rita Domonyi (Hungary).
