It is conceived as a Project Development & Mentorship Exchange program with a view to future co-productions and collaborations with French studios and producers.

- Eligible projects: short films, feature films, TV series or specials, transmedia
- Deadline: 15th March
- Outcome: pitch slot in front of an audience of animation professionals for all selected projects and specific communication on the MIFA website and marketing platforms + free MIFA accreditation and accommodation for 1 person per selected project
- Project development residence in France for 1 project of short or TV series
