The second annual Asian Animation Summit organizers have announced that the 2013 event will take place in Phuket, Thailand from December 9-11, following the Asia Television Forum. A five-star resort and spa on Karon Beach to be announced will host the Summit, which seeks to promote co-production and co-financing of animation projects.
This second summit tacks a third day onto the program to allow more screening opportunities and new regional funding briefings. 2013’s event will feature 24 animated projects from the region—which includes Australia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and other countries—seeking financing and market feedback, which are selected by the organizing partners based on potential and quality. Each day will begin with an informative “Regional Funding Seminar” that details the process and benefits of setting up co-productions in Australia, Malaysia and Korea.
