Weird (previously known as 3D Wire) turns 12 years old. From this 12th edition on, the market will be much more than animation, video games and new media, including new sectors such as board games or comics. That is why it becomes WEIRD, a new name that welcomes great ideas and IPs regardless of their origin.
One more year, Weird organizes the 12th edition of the Weird International Animation, Video Games and New Media Market in Segovia, Spain, from September 28th to October 4th 2020. The objective of the meeting is to create collaborations between distributors, producers, television channels, programmers, video game developers, students and animation directors, international and national.
Weird Market dedicates this call to new comic projects that want to make themselves known in their different stages of production: in pre-production, in production or finished.
The objective of this new call is to encourage young cartoonists, illustrators and screenwriters to present their original works, where creativity, innovation, experimentation stand out, as well as highlighting the importance of comics and illustration as a means of communication and transfer of ideas.
From the projects received a selection that will be published in the catalogue of Weird Market will be made, in order to promote and assist the distribution of the European comic industry. Special attention will be given to innovative projects.
From this selection of projects, which will be reflected in the publication, one or more projects will be extracted and presented during the market by their creators.
The publication is distributed in the main festivals and international animation, video games and new media markets in addition to its free online distribution that reaches more than 7,000 professionals each year. The purpose of the publication is to make known in these events the excellent Portuguese-Spanish production of animation and video games and to be able to put in contact its creators with distributors, buyers and co-producers.
