Brisbane secures Asian Animation Summit in 2017
Event organisers are anticipating that up to 250 attendees will take part in this year’s event, which is designed to attract animation producers who are interested in co-producing projects with partners in Asia-Pacific, as well as broadcasters, distributors and investors from the region and beyond.
AAS is owned and produced by Kidscreen and hosted by Screen Queensland and Brisbane Marketing.
“Speaking on behalf of all of our AAS partners, we are very proud to provide this platform for supporting and promoting the impressive animation talent pool in Asia-Pacific,” said Kidscreen vice president and publisher Jocelyn Christie.
“To know that so many projects have made the financing connections and partnerships needed to get off the ground at the Asian Animation Summit is incredibly gratifying.”
Over the three-day event, more than 20 projects from Australia, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and elsewhere in Asia-Pacific that are new to the market and looking for financing and partners will be presented.
