Cinekid is proud to introduce its Advisory Board, and we are presenting the members, one by one, in our newsletters and on the website during the run-up to the festival. By the time Cinekid for Professionals takes place, you will know our entire Board! This month we introduce you to Xavi Mas.

Xavi Mas has been working in the animation industry at Motion Pictures for 9 years. He is in charge of international sales & financing which he combines with creative development of animated series, including GLUMPERS, and currently PUMPKIN REPORTS.

How would you describe the strength of Cinekid for Professionals?
A great opportunity to approach producers and their brand new projects at an early stage of development.

How do you wish to best contribute to Cinekid for Professionals as a member of the Advisory Board?
I have been supporting Cinekid for quite a while and besides the great atmosphere and vibe you can see in the market it is really fulfilling to be able to find potential business opportunities and to identify new talent, as well as give some creative support to it.

What is your favourite children’s TV show?
I always had a major preference for comedies so ADVENTURE TIME and GUMBALL would be at the top of my list. However, the show that really touched me and made me love animation was DRAGON BALL.
