CEE Animation Forum 2019

CEE ANIMATION is the new umbrella name for all the activities previously known as VISEGRAD ANIMATION FORUM, or VAF.


access to markets, lectoring, pitching, networking

Formerly known as VAF TREBON, this pitching competition is open for proposals of animated projects in development in three categories: Short Films (single film less than 20 min.), Series / TV Specials (series of any format and single films over 20 min.) and Feature Films.


dynamic tailor-made workshop for experienced animated film producers

The CEE Animation Workshop is a networking and training event. The pilot edition organized in Ljubljana in December 2017 brought together 26 professionals from 19 CEE countries and helped to build a stronger and more knowledgeable regional network of co-producers, artists, planners, marketers, sellers and financing partners.
The first edition of the workshop, divided in 3 one-week residential modules, will start in 2018 and include meetings, discussions, pitching, lobbying efforts and high quality, high-end training to enable and inspire CEE companies to work together with more resources.


dissemination and promotion of short films by promising young talents

This project, formerly known as VAF NEW TALENTS, is intended for promotion and alternative distribution of the most talented young animation filmmakers from Central and Eastern Europe. Its aim is to present internationally the best films made by students and debuting artists in a given year to professional and festival audience.
The selection of the films is made by festival directors from CEE and focuses on extraordinary talents whose works promise successful future careers. Apart from a brochure with the film description and an online database, the selection is each year presented as a compilation at numerous animated film festivals around the world.
