Singapore’s Media Development Authority (MDA) has announced the launch of the International Animation Fund at this year’s MIPTV. The new Fund, which invites applications from across the world for new animation content in any format, will entail MDA co-investing up to S$5 million (US$3.5 million) for each qualifying project.
FremantleMedia Enterprises will represent the chosen projects as worldwide distributor. Applications for the International Animation Fund are now open (application form downloadable at www.smf.sg), and proposed projects must have a Singapore partner. The Fund comes in the wake of MDA’s International Film Fund, launched last year at the Cannes Film Market.
