The sixth annual Asian Animation Summit will once again take place in Brisbane, Australia this year from November 29 to December 1. The animation project market is an initiative of KOCCA (Korea), MDeC (Malaysia) and SIPA/DITP (Thailand), owned and produced by Kidscreen, hosted by Screen Queensland and Brisbane Marketing, and supported by AINAKI (Indonesia).
“Following last year’s successful event, Screen Queensland looks forward to the AAS returning in 2017,” said the organization’s CEO, Tracey Vieira. “Screen Queensland is perfectly positioned to play a role in partnering with Asian-region animation projects for television, subscription video-on- demand (SVOD) and the internet.”
AAS 2017 organizers anticipate 200 to 250 attendees for this year’s three-day event designed to attract partners for co-productions with companies in Asia-Pacific, as well as broadcasters, distributors and investors from the region and beyond. More than 20 new-to-market projects from the region will be presented over the three-day event, which will feature informative morning panels or presentations.
