Cartoon Connection Canada combines half a day of conferences with key actors from Europe and Canada and approximately 900 one-to-one meetings between European, Canadian and Latin American animation professionals. Participants come with an animation project to seek out partners, co-producers and distributors for their shows. The objective behind the organization of Cartoon Connection Canada is to stimulate co-productions between Europe and Canada, and to form sustainable business links between European and Canadian producers, broadcasters and distributors.
