The call for Latin American projects for animated feature films and TV series in development for Animation! Pitching Sessions has broken the record this year, with 180 registrations from all Latin America. With this number, this 2017 edition has surpassed last year’s record by more than fifty percent.

The successful response includes projects for feature films and TV series from 14 countries, such as Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Colombia, El Salvador, Cuba and Dominican Republic. Countries such as Mexico and Brazil have doubled their registrations in both categories.
