make up the ma­jor­ity with 30 ti­tles, fol­lowed by the United King­dom with 11 and Ire­land with nine. Italy, Spain and Ger­many each have seven, as does Scan­di­navia as a whole ( with four from Den­mark alone). Bel­gium has four rep­re­sen­ta­tives, the Nether­lands has three, and for the first time three Korean projects will par­tic­i­pate in the event.

The Korean en­tries — FelixS­tu­dio’s Hob­gob­lin Ma­gi­cian, PriSys­tem’s The Mole Farmer, Rabby and Tak Toon En­ter­prise’s Galaxy Kids — build on the col­lab­o­ra­tions es­tab­lished at Car­toon Con­nec­tion Korea. Th­ese new­com­ers join re­turn­ing, es­tab­lished Euro houses Folim­age, JAM Me­dia, Fu­turikon, Dar­gaud, Mon­ster, Imira, Kavaleer, HiT, Car­toon Sa­loon, Wun­derWerk and oth­ers to show­case the di­verse of­fer­ings of the world an­i­ma­tion scene.

A couple of note­wor­thy trends have emerged this year. Firstly, cross-plat­form con­cepts rep­re­sent 55% of this year’s pitches. Four of th­ese were seen at Car­toon 360 in June: The Memets by White Door Ent. ( Spain), Krab­stadt by Mon­key Ma­chine Film ( Swe­den), My Dream Pets by Con­tentin­uum ( Bel­gium) and The Von Mopp Method by Chicken’s Chicots Prod. ( France). Se­condly, preschool fare makes up one third of the of­fer­ings this year, re­flect­ing the grow­ing num­ber of kid-ded­i­cated chan­nels in the re­gion. Projects aimed at chil­dren ages six to 11 still dom­i­nated at 53%, while 10% of the pre­sen­ta­tions will be aimed at adult and young adult au­di­ences.
