NINTH-ANNUAL ASIAN ANIMATION SUMMIT EVENT TO BE HELD IN INDONESIA THIS YEAR

6 May - 2020

Tags from the story: Asian Animation Summit, Kidscreen.

Showcasing as many as 30 animated concepts for kids from Indonesia, Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan and beyond that have never been to market before

Kidscreen is pleased to announce that the ninth-annual Asian Animation Summit is moving forward as a live event scheduled to take place in Bali, Indonesia from November 18 to 20.

Over the course of the three-day event, up to 30 projects from Indonesia, Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan and elsewhere in Asia-Pacific that are brand-new to the market and looking for financing and partners will be presented. Kidscreen is particularly excited to welcome Japan, which is participating as a partner region for the first time this year.

Roughly 50% of projects that debuted at past AAS events have since gone into production, including such well-known series as The Curious World of Linda (2018), Bluey (2016 “Best in Show” winner), Balloon Barnyard (2014), Kuu Kuu Harajuku (2013) and Bottersnikes & Gumbles (2012). A full 88% of producers who have presented projects at AAS report that they met critical broadcast and financing partners at the event. And 95% of them said attending AAS has helped them establish important relationships with international producers.

Registration for AAS 2020 is now open, and a $200 Early-Bird discount is in effect until Friday, August 28. In light of the continued uncertainty around the coronavirus pandemic, Kidscreen has adjusted its cancellation policy for AAS so that if it’s not possible to produce a live event because of COVID-19, all event registration fees will be fully refunded.

AAS 2020 is owned and produced by Kidscreen, with generous support from hosting partner BAPAREKRAF (Indonesia); and presenting and supporting partners KOCCA (Korea), MDEC (Malaysia), Create NSW and Screen Queensland (Australia), DITP (Thailand) and VIPO (Japan).
