Kidscreen has announced that the third-annual Asian Animation Summit will take place this year between 3 and 5 December in Hanoi, Vietnam. The event’s venue is the Sofitel Plaza, a five-star hotel located just a few minutes away from the inspiring capital city’s Old Quarter.
An initiative of KOCCA (Korea), MDeC (Malaysia), SIPA and DITP (Thailand), AAS 2015 is owned and produced by Kidscreen, and supported by Screen Australia. Organisers are anticipating that 250-300 attendees will take part this year. The event is designed to attract producers of animation who are interested in co-producing projects with Asian partners, as well as Asian broadcasters, distributors and investors from Asia and beyond.
Over the course of the three-day event, 24 projects from Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia and elsewhere in Asia that are brand-new to the market and looking for financing and partners will be presented. Each day will begin with a highly informative panel discussion or presentation that explores new market trends, business models or creative techniques that are most relevant to Asian producers.
