Debuting in 1969, the ASIFA-East Animated Film Festival is one of the longest running festivals of its kind. Each year, entries are submitted and judged during special jury screenings. Only current ASIFA-East members are permitted to vote, and winners are chosen by tally and are confirmed by the board. Due to pandemic complications, there will be no best in show this year.
