North east bid to stage 2007 Cartoon show

The European Association of Animation Film visited Newcastle Gateshead last month to assess the region's bid to host its annual industry event, the Cartoon Forum, in September 2007.

The bid team was led by the Newcastle Gateshead Initiative and the Sponsors Club for Arts and Business and included representatives from One Northeast, Arts Council England North East, Northern Film & Media, Digital City Teesside, Tyneside Cinema and Codeworks.

The five-day peripatetic trade fair attracts around 800 broadcasters, film and television producers, investors and media from 20 European countries.

The 2005 Cartoon Forum takes place in Kolding, Denmark, from 21-25 September.

A decision on the 2007 venue is expected later this month.
