27 French projects at Cartoon Movie 2021

For the first time, Unifrance will be present from March 9 through 11 at Cartoon Movie to support, from the outset, the international promotion of French animated feature film projects.

Created in 1999, this major European coproduction forum is one of the most important professional events dedicated to animated film in the world. Cartoon Movie will take place this year entirely online due to the pandemic.

A genuine meeting point for animation professionals, Cartoon Movie allows project developers to connect with French and foreign coproducers, funders, broadcasters, and distributors. It is also an opportunity for participants to exchange and gather the points of view of foreign professionals currently developing and producing. Finally, for producers of completed films, it is an opportunity to enhance visibility of their titles a few months ahead of their release.

Once again this year, the French will be out in force with 27 projects presented (out of 55 in total) at different stages of development: 9 in the concept stage, 12 in development, 4 in production, and 2 in sneak preview. Of these, 11 are international majority or minority coproductions, and 16 are 100% French projects at this stage—although they could become international in the next phases of development.

In the producers department, we note three French companies renowned for their short films, each of whom will present two feature-length projects: Autour de Minuit with Les Ombres (coproduced by Panique ! and Schmuby), and The Midnight King (coproduced by micro_scope and Schmuby Productions); Miyu Productions with Saules Aveugles, Femme endormie (in coproduction with Cinéma Defacto, Doghouse Films, micro_scope, and Unité Centrale), and Le Parfum d’Irak (in coproduction with Nova Production); and lastly Tchack with Jungle Rouge (in coproduction with Dolce Vita Films, Intermezzo Films, and Nadasdy Film), and Maryam et Varto (in coproduction with Araprod and Bright Light Films). 

In the creators department, this edition is an opportunity to meet directors of animated feature films already established on the French cinema scene, such as Anca DamianXavier Picard, Alexis Ducord, Denis Do, Ben Stassen, and Alexandre Heboyan. But it is also the place to discover the debut features from filmmakers renowned for their short animated works, such as Fabrice Luang-Vija, Nadia Micault, Maciek Szczerbowski, Chris Lavis, and many others.

We can also highlight the presence of many French projects (9 films) by women directors: projects by filmmakers already recognized in the short or feature film fields, such as Sarah Van Den Boom, Hefang Wei, Anca Damian, Nadia Micault, and Jola Kudela; but also a first film by comic book author Chloé Cruchaudet, who is directing the adaptation of her graphic novel La Poudre d'Escampette.
