Welcome Back

Welcome back to another exciting season of ASIFA-East animation programs!  The board returned last week after a relaxing summer to begin planning our 2014-2015 season.  We look forward to seeing each and every one of you at our upcoming events!

To start things off, a sizable contingent of ASIFA-East community members will be attending the Ottawa International Animation Festival from September 17 – 21, 2014.  We invite you to join us there as we gather together with other animation fans to celebrate our love for all things animated!  We will gather together for a group photo at 3pm at the Animator’s Picnic on Friday, September 19th.   Don’t forget, ASIFA members qualify for a discounted pass to the festival.


For those of us not going to Ottawa, ASIFA-East will be attending the 2014 SVA Alumni Film & Animation Festival from September 19 – 21, 2014.  This festival will feature a free midnight screening of “Beavis & Butthead Do America” followed by a Q&A with Director Yvette Kaplan on 9/20, with an introduction by ASIFA-East!  There will be screenings, premieres of new work, behind-the-scenes looks at box office hits and classics, and special Q&As with industry insiders, hosted by some of the college’s most accomplished film, video, and animation alumni.  A full schedule and list of participants can be found at http://www.eventbrite.com/o/sva-theatre-4577833077.   ASIFA-East is proud to be a partner of the After School Special and we hope to see you there!

In the coming weeks, we’ll have more information available on our upcoming events including The Polish School of Animation festival and Crazy 8 Block Party screening.  Stay tuned to the aNYmator for all the latest!
