The training will take place on Monday, 2 December from 14.00 to 20.00.
The next day on Tuesday, 3 December from 9.00 to 11.00, each participating project team will have 10-minute slots to execute the pitching presentations. The members of the international jury (experienced film professionals and/or film and TV executives), will choose the winning project and will also give a special mention.
Two members of the winning project will receive an invitation to CEE Animation Forum 2020, including free accreditations to the event and to Anifilm International Animated Film Festival, 3 nights accommodation, meals and transport.
