It is with great pleasure that the animation film professionals from Central and Eastern European countries – united under the CEE Animation brand – have accepted the generous offer of Creative Europe MEDIA to be part of their very first Umbrella Stand at MIFA in Annecy and present the industry, studios, institutions, authors and festivals of the Central and Eastern European animation.

For over seven years, national associations of producers of animated film, primarily from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia, have been united under the Visegrad Animation Forum. As this community and network of representatives of animated industry from the CEE region has grown larger, it has become essential to gather all our activities under one new brand: CEE ANIMATION, continuing to include the traditional Pitching Forum (held in May in Trebon), an advanced workshop for producers and authors, promotion of young talents and joint activities aiming to strengthen the film industry.

With 30 companies from CEE in the Creative Europe MEDIA Umbrella Stand and many films and projects from the region present at the Annecy festival this year, the animation industry from Central and Eastern Europe is making a powerful move to establish CEE Animation as a quality brand in the world of animation, which is strongly rooted in the past and has great ambitions to grow in the future.
