Every year RAI Trade organizes the International Festival of Television Animation "Cartoons on the Bay" in order to sustain the commitment of authors and producers worldwide to unite art with entertainment, and to provide a service for buyers, TV distributors and executives, by offering them a wide range of successful and innovative products to choose from.
The Competition is open to all animated products of any nationality which were expressly created for television: TV series, pilots of TV series, TV specials, and short-films. The definition of an animated product is as established by the Association Internationale du Film d'Animation - Asifa.
Among all the programs submitted to Cartoons on the Bay, the Festival selects those that are considered the most representative of each country. The programs, divided according to the country of production, give an overview of the latest cultural, technological and industrial trends in the field all over the planet, with special attention given to those that seem most innovative. The programs in the Official Selection will feature in the Digital Library of Cartoons on the Bay, in the catalog and in the website of the Festival.
