Canada and Europe both have a long history of international coproduction. In 2023-2024 alone, the EU accounted for more than half of Canada’s coproductions, with France, Germany and Belgium as top partners.

This cooperation marks the second time that EFP engages with Annecy’s Mifa to make European producers visible by networking and promoting a wide variety of key animation players from different European countries outside of Europe and highlight the acclaimed European animation scene.
