Cartoon Movie moves to Bordeaux!

The city of Bordeaux was chosen for the vitality of its digital economy which is expanding fast, for the quality of its Palais des Congrès de Bordeaux, and for the dynamism of a metropolis combining history, modernity and a verdant city on a human scale. With information and communication technologies sectors, digital sectors, centres of excellence connected with digital imaging activities, Bordeaux Metropole is very active in the sector of digital imaging intended for entertainment.

Bordeaux Metropole which stimulates and supports this digital economy is fully involved in this international event and, as a prelude to Cartoon Movie on 8 March, it will hold a new edition of La Grande Jonction, which aims to bring all the traditional industries of the digital economy closer together. During the afternoon, another event will take place in order to establish a new synergy between the European animation film sector and that of video games and transmedia: "Cartoon Games & Apps". The objective is to encourage players in these two sectors to move closer together to come up with a project that takes the form both of a feature-length film and a video game and to expand the commercial opportunities.

Another factor that influenced the choice of Bordeaux is its proximity to Angoulême where the Pôle Image Magelis clusters thirty animation studios, which is simply unique in Europe and worldwide. Let us remember on this point that, among a large number of productions made in France, "Kirikou" and "Ernest & Celestine" were made at the studios at Angoulême.
