    PRAGUE: The 9th edition of the leading regional pitching, financing and coproduction event CEE Animation Forum, which was held online in an extended edition from 26 April to 6 May 2021, announced its winners.

    Forty animated projects (selected from 116 submissions) were showcased in five categories and 80% of the programme was live-streamed on Facebook Live. “This turned out to be an excellent decision as the first statistics surpassed all our expectations”, Managing Director Matija Sturm said in a statement.
