For the fourth year, the Animasyros festival organizes the Agora (Market) on the island of Syros and travels for the first time to Athens in the context of the first Athens Animation Agora (3A). The Agora has become an important part of the festival, aiming to create co-production opportunities as well as bring together local and international creators and producers as well as create an annual network of professionals from the animation industry.

During the Athens Animation Agora, a series of educational workshops and talks will take place led by well-known professionals from Greece and abroad, as well as a pitch coaching session in order to help pitch participants get ready for the Agora and the festival.

During the Festival in Syros, a pitching forum and a video library will take place whereby prominent animation filmmakers and producers from all over the world are invited to present new or ongoing animation productions to distributors and other representatives of the cinema industry.

Who can participate

  1. Animation films that are in development and funding stage
