Development support is dedicated to feature films at the design, writing or development stages of the projects and intended primarily for cinema release.
Several phases of work can be considered at this step: graphic research, storyboard, animation test, animatic, pilot, etc.
This support concerns projects carried out by feature film production companies acting as producers or co-executive producers (upon presentation of a contract). The producer will have to take on the artistic, technical and financial responsibility of the project and be able to provide a contract for transfer of copyright, dated and signed, with the projects' author(s)/director(s).
Development support for animated feature films can be cumulated with screenwriting support for 1st and 2nd feature films provided by Ciclic.
Every animation technique is accepted.
The funding amount for animated feature films is of €25,000 per project.
Ciclic doesn't organize specific call for projects. However, the program is based on the projects pitched at the Cartoon Movie in Bordeaux or submitted to the Annecy MIFA Pitches and Annecy Residence.
