The registration of projects has as deadline on July 24th and adds two new modalities: comic and board games
The 12th edition of Weird, International Animation, Videogames and New Media Market, officially opens its calls for projects. The contest to be held in Segovia (Spain) from September 28th to October 3rd 2020, will receive until July 24th projects in five different sections: animation and video games, transmedia, webseries, board games and comics.
The call for animation and videogames projects is once again a cultural bridge, thanks to its Luso-Spanish scope. In addition, RTVE, Movistar + and the Annecy Festival continue as collaborators, granting various recognitions such as the Movistar+ Short Film Project Award, RTVE Awards for the Most Innovative Video Game and VR Video Game and the Annecy-MIFA Award for Best Young Creator Animation Series Project. For its part, the category of European new media, innovative and transmedia projects continues to be a great continental reference on new trends, while the international section of animation webseries keeps Átomo Network as its main collaborator. In addition, this year there are two new calls aimed at European board game projects and European comic projects.
The five calls are deadline on July 24th. Later, in the month of September, the organization will announce the official selection that will be included in the catalog and the projects selected to be presented during the Weird by their creators.
