At the crossroads of the International Animation Film Festival and its Market, the Mifa,
the Creative Focus is a platform devoted to new talents in animation. The Creative Focus offers many events within the Event, including a Call for Projects for four categories:

• feature films

• short films

• TV series and specials

• cross-media (at the Mifa GMC)

The projects are selected by a committee of experts and then presented to a target public of professionals (producers, broadcasters buyers etc.) during the Creative Focus that will be taking place from 4th to 8th June 2012.

Partners will also award different prizes: financial prizes, pre-purchasing, creative residence stays...

Project developers can download the interactive entry form and send their projects to CITIA, the Festival organising structure, up to 15th February 2012.
