An attractive and catchy presentation of your project, showing its «essence» (a teaser or a nice extract of the pilot film). This trailer will be screened during the Croissant & Coffee Shows in front of all participants!

  • The QUALITY of your trailer is very important.

    - Useful to stand out from the other projects
    - Will help to attract a maximum of participants to your presentation
    - Remember that 3 projects will be pitched at the same time - people will have to choose which session to attend! 

    TIP: don't try to show too much of the story, sometimes one simple gag is more efficient than too many images.

  • It is essential to meet the deadline: trailers that have not reached CARTOON by 23 August 2021 will not be presented during the Croissant & Coffee Shows, and these projects will inevitably be disadvantaged.
  • Only for the Croissant & Coffee Shows : this trailer will not be available for you on site. So think of bringing a copy with you if you intend to screen it during your pitching session!

Please note that by sending your trailer, you agree that CARTOON will display it in Cartoon mobile app (available a week before the event), and on Cartoon website after the event. You also agree that the compilation of trailers for the Croissant/Coffee Shows will be put at disposal of the press (see in "MyChecklist" for approval).

➢ 23 August: Trailer has to be sent before this deadline (by 23 August at 23:59).
