We are proud to announce that the online training and preparation will be led by expert tutor Matthieu Darras (Director of Projects/Talents Lab – First Cut Lab, Full Circle Lab, Pop Up Film Residency), to discuss and/or fine-tune the strengths and weaknesses of the projects as well as best pitching strategies.

Members of our excellent jury will assess the projects and give them feedback for their further development. We are proud to announce that the members of AnimatekaPRO Pitch 2020 jury are Anna Vašová (13ka), Luce Grosjean (MIYU Distribution) and Maja Zupanc (Invida).

Two members of the winning project will receive an invitation to attend the CEE Animation Forum 2021.

The organizer of the AnimatekaPRO Pitch 2020 is Animateka in partnership with CEE Animation Forum and in collaboration with the Slovene Animated Film Association.
