Projekt "Mapping the Animation Industry in Europe"

We would like to inform you of a major research project: “Mapping the European Animation Industry” that has been commissioned by Creative Europe (MEDIA sub-Programme) to  the European Audiovisual Observatory. The project will result in a brochure on the animation industry to be distributed at the International Animation Film Market (MIFA) which takes place within the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in June 2015, and also in a report on the animation industry to be published and available for free online at the end of 2015.
The main aims of the project include providing a map of the structure of the industry, outlining the contribution of the animation industry to the audiovisual sector, and providing data on the animation audiovisual works produced in Europe, the distribution and success of animation, the number of companies in the sector, employment, revenues and synergies.
Key actors of the industry such as CARTOON and CITIA, as well as some national animation associations have already provided us with valuable input to the study.
In this context, the European Audiovisual Observatory will distribute an online questionnaire, which you will be receiving shortly, in order to gather data from the companies involved in the sector.  We would like to thank you in advance for your co-operation in responding to this questionnaire and contributing to the success of the animation project.
