4th edition of Visegrad Animation Forum
The 4th edition of Visegrad Animation Forum VAF 2016 focuses on supporting „market access“.
The Visegrad Animation Forum (May 3-5 2016, Třeboň) has grown into a platform where producers can build networks among themselves and with CEE region broadcasters, present new talents and their creative work for EU producers and help find financing and distribution for their projects. In addition to the main pitching competition for short films and TV series, the three-day programme offers a number of presentations, debates and screenings. Animation professionals at the forum can acquire skills and know-how from foreign experts from the field as well as useful contacts that will contribute to making their animated project a success. Main topics will include choosing the right market and a potential coproduction partner, distributing childrens short films, a case study of successful animated projects, presenting prestigious European studios (Silver Fox Animation and Camera-etc.) and many more.
On Winter Solstice on 21 December, the sun will rise at 7:41 and set at 16:19. The day will only be 8 hours and 38 minutes long.
The Italian Short Film Center is happy to announce the first Torino Short Film Market.

In order to promote the Short Film Pool, a flyer was created that will be launched in Clermont-Ferrand.
The shortest day of the year is a very special day for the short film. On December 21st, people in many different countries around the world celebrate the “short format”.
