ICEX Spain Trade & Investment has published the updated edition of the “Who is Who Animation from Spain 2022” guide, dedicated to the Spanish companies in the animation and visual effects sector with active projects for the current year and international potential
The dossier offers a detailed compendium of Spanish animation production and distribution companies, their main projects and contact details. It also includes profiles of technology services companies related to animation and VFX, as well as updated information on the numerous tax incentives available in Spain for both domestic productions and international co-productions. The sector once again demonstrates its confidence in this initiative, with the number of participating companies increasing up to 72, 18% of which are new additions. This edition also showcases the new corporate identity developed by ICEX for Animation from Spain, as part of the recently launched rebranding for the Audiovisual from Spain umbrella brand.
With a clear international vocation and published in English, the guide (which can be downloaded free of charge at this link) will be used as a promotional tool at all the international trade fairs and markets in which ICEX usually participates with its own pavilion for Spanish companies.
Thus, its launch coincides with the celebration in March of two major international animation events, such as Kidscreen Virtual Summit and Cartoon Movie, in Bordeaux. A number of Spanish companies have already confirmed their attendance to Kidscreen Summit Virtual, the online edition of the famous Miami market (with its live event being postponed until July). These include Ánima Kitchent, Birdland Entertainment, Blackout Productions, DeAPlaneta Entertainment, Hampa Studio, Koyi, Peekaboo Animation, Puro Digital, Tomavision Studio, We Love Animation, Zinkia Entertainment or Zip Zap Producciones, as well as the public entities Instituto Canario de Desarrollo Cultural, Canarias ZEC and the Sociedades de Promoción Económica de Gran Canaria and Tenerife.
