CEE Animation Forum is a pitching competition which gathers animation projects across Europe. The event is organized by CEE Animation, a platform for the animation industry in Central and Eastern Europe. CEE Animation Forum 2020 was held from 6th to 8th October as a digital version due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year’s CEE Animation Forum streamed video pitches of 28 selected animation projects in development, which are in four categories: Short films, Series and TV specials, Feature films, and XR (VR, AR, MR and other immersive formats) on CEE Animation’s official Facebook page.
