In 2016 Ventana Sur presented for the first time an exclusive space for animation: The Animation! section. A unique opportunity for producers from the region and for professionals from other parts of the world looking to connect with Latin America.
In alliance with the Annecy International Animated Film Festival and Market (MIFA), the most important in the world, an open call was launched between August and October 2016 that resulted in 115 registrations. The pre-selection jury selected 13 projects in development for the Feature Film and TV Series categories, from 7 Latin American countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Peru), presented during the Animation! Pitching Sessions at Ventana Sur 2016.
The Animation! activities featured the regional and global perspectives on animation, and also allowed for the reflection on the topics of interest for the industry. Projects seeking strategic alliances, special presentations, networking activities, round tables, work groups with international specialists and pitching trainings were some of the key elements in this new section.
