>With gender parity a hot topic in the film and TV business, Cartoon Network is throwing its considerable weight behind efforts to help the next generation of animation talent break through.

>The Turner network is one of the big three kids channel operators globally alongside Disney and Nickelodeon. As the Annecy Animation Festival and MIFA market get underway it said it will fund a female animation student. The effort to discover and support more female talent is part of a focus at Annecy on women in the business.

>Cartoon will also have a session at the festival celebrating the best work from women in the industry. As part of that, British animator Julia Pott will give attendees a first sneak peek at Cartoon Network special “Summer Camp Island.” Eva Lee Wallberg, creator of Cartoon Network Original “The Heroic Quest of the Valiant Prince Ivandoe” and Lauren Sassen, creative director of “We Bare Bears” – both Annecy-nominated – will also talk about their experiences and work. From the executive ranks, Turner’s international chief content officer, Patricia Hidalgo, formerly of Disney, will also speak.
