Rai Trade announced the program for their annual international Cartoons on the Bay festival held in Portofino April 7-10. The program features comics, art, videogames and animation centering around this year’s theme of family entertainment.



“We want to understand how cartoons have dealt and now deal with the value of family,” says Roberto Genovesi, artistic director of the festival. 



Brazil has been selected as the guest country for this year’s festival, and Brazilian animation will be the target of events and retrospectives. Also, the Cartoon Villiage has been redesigned to accommodate students, and an attendance of 5,000 visiotrs a day is expected in this area.

In addition to the festival, Cartoons on the Bay is home to the Pulcinella Awards, which honor cartoon properties in nine competition categories; the Arlecchino Award for properties that move from videogame to cartoon; and Gualtiero Schiaffino Award for the best book-based animation work.
