7 Irish Projects Selected for Cartoon Forum 2024

Annual animation pitchfest Cartoon Forum has announced its 2024 lineup of projects, with a total of 75 series/specials making the cut this year from 107 submissions.

Kids & family content represents roughly three-quarters of the selection—nearly 63% of projects fall into the children’s category (which includes tweens and bridge audiences), followed by adult/teen content (23%), preschool (7%) and family (7%). And the total combined budget of all projects, which collectively represent 394 hours of content, is US$381 million (EUR€350.77 million).

Nearly half of this year’s projects hail from France (36), followed very distantly by Ireland (seven) and Italy (six). And producers from Armenia, Georgia and Moldova will participate as first-time presenters.

The Irish project selected include; Boxford & Bounce (52×3′) from Revelator, Captain Carrie and the Monster Ship (26×7′) from Treehouse Republic, Duck’s Out of Water (52×11′) from DreamLogic Studios, Ooops! The Ark is Stranded (52×11′) from Moetion Picture, Rachel’s Pet Parlour (40×11′) from Giant, The Funckeltunks (26×11′) from LissenBloom and Tonko (26×22′) from Triggerfish!

Continuing its annual tradition of spotlighting a specific country in the broader European animation industry, Cartoon Forum will focus on Italy this year. And environmental and animal-inspired content seems to be quite prevalent in the 2024 lineup.
