Animation Production Days (4 – 6 May 2022) in Stuttgart with their own newly developed project and have the chance to convince potential co-production and financing partners of their ideas.

Animation Production Days (APD) is a curated business platform for the German and international animation industry.

Part of the programme is also the APD conference and various networking events. APD is a joint venture of the Stuttgart International Festival of Animated Film (ITFS) and FMX – Film & Media Exchange.

Applications can be made by European graduates from universities and film schools with a focus on animation, young professionals and company founders (up to the age of 35). Animation projects from the areas of feature film, TV series, games, cross-media and transmedia projects can all be submitted. Hybrid formats are also eligible. Short film projects may be submitted if they are suitable for further development in other formats.
