THE IBERO-AMERICAN ANIMATION SETS UP BONDS IN THE QUIRINO AWARDS’ COPRODUCTION FORUM

* The first edition of the event brings together in Tenerife more than one hundred fifty professionals from the Ibero-American animation.

* The International Congress proposes connecting professionals and Universities to think about the contemporary animation.

* The award ceremony will give nine awards to the best of the Ibero-American production of the last two years.

More than a hundred fifty professionals of the Ibero-American animation will gather at the Quirino Awards, that will take place in Santa Cruz de Tenerife (Spain) on April 6th and 7th and seek to appraise and set up bonds between the animation production among Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

In addition to the award ceremony, that will be carried out on April 7th and will give nine awards to the best of the animation of the region (the finalist works can be checked here); the event will be the headquarters of the first Ibero-American Coproduction Forum, space oriented exclusively to stablish networks between professionals from both sides of the Atlantic. Several networking activities are posed there, such as presentation of the animation industry’s state in different countries and regions, coproduction B2B meetings and various encounter spaces with the objective of encouraging the coproduction and flow of works at the Ibero-American level. In the Forum, representatives of television channels, pay TV channels, VoD platforms, distributors, exhibitors, sales agents and international journalists -from the region, the United States and Europe- will have the opportunity to learn about the new projects being developed in the region.

The program, which will be available in the next few days on the website of the Quirino Awards, includes industry exhibitions of the different countries, with the aim of bringing together the different production scenarios that facilitate bilateral dialogues. The presentation of the sector is expected by professional associations of Argentina (Animar Cluster, APA), Brazil (ABCA), Chile (Animachi), Colombia (GEMA), Ecuador (Guild of Animators), Mexico (ACDMX), Peru (Peru Animation), Portugal (Casa da Animaçao) and Spain (Diboos).

Likewise, the organization has organized a round table with the different associations and the Ibermedia Program, with the objective of analyzing the need of the Ibero-American animation sector and the possibilities to be implemented from the audiovisual coproduction incentive entity in the Ibero-American area.

Parallelly to the Forum the International Ibero-American Animation Congress will take place, event that seeks generating a space for the academic and professional argument about the animation through the presentation of eleven papers.
