The Asian Animation summit (AAS) is designed to attract producers of animation who are interested in co-producing projects with Asian partners, as well as broadcasters, distributors and investors from Asia and elsewhere.
AAS is neither a conference nor a market, but rather an event that aims to facilitate international financing and co-production connections for projects from the region. Participants will spend three days attending presentations of new children’s TV/web concepts from Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia, Thailand, China, New Zealand and elsewhere in Asia Pacific. Presentations will be given by the projects’ creators and producers, with assistance from high-profile mentors from the animation industry. There will also be plenty of time built into the schedule for meetings and casual networking, making it easy for attendees to follow up immediately on the projects they like most.
The Summit will feature animated and mixed-media TV/web series of any episode length for children up to 15 years of age. Second/subsequent seasons of existing TV series are ineligible, so our program will be focused on brand-new original concepts.
The 2019 Asian Animation Summit is owned and produced by Kidscreen, with generous support from hosting partner KOCCA (Korea) and its presenting and supporting partners.
