Hello everyone. Due to the inclement weather, the 2014 ASIFA-East Animated Film Festival entry deadline has been extended until February 10th, 2014. Please see this link to download the entry form and learn more about the festival. Awards will be given out across a variety of categories and craft from student, commercial, and independent entries to excellence in writing, design, and animation.
Debuting in 1969, the ASIFA-East Animated Film Festival is one of the longest running festivals of its kind. The festival is a unique showcase for the most groundbreaking independent and commercial animation being produced in the industry today. Every February, entries are submitted and judged during special jury screenings in March. Only current ASIFA-East members are permitted to vote for the winning films. The votes are sealed and tallied by an independent accountant and announced at a special awards ceremony in the spring. The exciting evening continues with a lively reception, where award winners, members of the industry, and animation enthusiasts can meet one another, enjoy a few refreshments, and network.
