Hosted by Screen Queensland and Brisbane Marketing, the 2016 Asian Animation Summit is owned and produced by Kidscreen, in concert with presenting partners KOCCA (Korea), MDeC (Malaysia), and SIPA and DITP (Thailand) , with a mandate to facilitate international financing and co-production connections for projects from the Asian region.
This year’s event is set to take place in Brisbane, Australia from November 22 to 24. Over the course of the three-day event, each project will be presented in a moderated live pitch and Q&A format, with plenty of time for follow-up meetings and casual networking built into the schedule.
There will also be informative conference sessions at the start of Tuesday and Wednesday, touching on topics that are highly relevant to Asian animation producers. They are as follows:
