For the first time in its history, the 31st Cartoon Forum was held from 15th to 17th September 2020 as an online version due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, a lot of participants ranging from producers, investors, broadcasters, and buyers, to SVoD/VoD platforms, watched video pitches on a well-developed special website which Cartoon, the organizer of Cartoon Forum, prepared in a limited time after they decided to hold this year’s event online in the beginning of September.
