Cartoon Network Screening At SXSW 2017

Cartoon Network USA will be hosting a special screening during the SXSW 2017 (South by Southwest) media event in Austin, Texas on Monday 13th March at 8pm at the Long Center for Performing Arts. The screening will feature never before seen episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball, We Bare Bears, Ben 10 and Teen Titans Go! and apparently there’s a big surprise too. A SXSW badge will be required for access to the screening.

SXSW is a major annual media event and is an amalgamation of film, interactive media and music festivals. At last year’s SXSW event, Cartoon Network USA hosted the world premiere of The Powerpuff Girls 2016 reboot as well as a pre-premiere party. Last year, Cartoon Network also hosted a creativity panel with Ian Jones-Quartey (creator of OK K.O.!: Let’s Be Heroes and former supervising director for Steven Universe), Julia Pott (Creator of Summer Camp Island), Kyle Carrozza (Creator of Mighty Magiswords), Pete Browngardt (Creator of Uncle Grandpa and Secret Mountain Fort Awesome) and Rob Sorcher (Chief Content Officer at Cartoon Network). Cartoon Network also hosted a joint panel with Lego about their on-going content collaboration with shows such as Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu and Nexo Knights.

Turner Africa (Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Boing) have partnered with Animation SA, an organisation that represents the animation industry in South Africa to create the first ever Animation Lounge at the DISCOP Johannesburg media industry convention on 2nd and 4th November 2016 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.

As part of the Animation Lounge booth, Turner and Animation SA will be running an Animation Pitching competition, where African producers and storytellers can pitch their show ideas to a panel of local and international industry experts, Turner will also offer producers scheduled pitching sessions, there will be a sharing and Q&A sessions before the competition. Competition winners and runner-ups will also win cash prizes.

Pierre Branco, vice president & general manager of Turner Southern Europe & Africa made these statement regarding the pitching competition and partnership with Animation SA:

“It is a great opportunity for Turner Africa to sponsor the Animation SA booth and pitching competition, says for Turner. This is a great demonstration of how we are strengthening our presence across the continent and building our local production strategy to make content relevant and engaging for African audiences.”

Nick Wilson, chair of the Export Missions Committee of Animation South Africa also added:

“This partnership with Turner is indicative of the bargaining power of the collective and is validation for the efforts of all the volunteers at Animation South Africa over the years. Our mandate is to grow the animation industry in South Africa and there is no better way to do that than in dialogue with one of the biggest players in global animation.”
