Over the years, ASIFA-SF has formed its own, unique personality (like that of the Bay Area) with a committment to personal vision and artistic expression thru animation.

Our current president is Karl Cohen, who has served continuously since 1992. An instructor at SF State University (in Animation History), Karl writes and edits the ASIFA-SF newsletter which is beloved around the world as a comprehensive source for animation news and opinions. Informal elections are held in January of every year.

ASIFA-SF gathers over 300 professionals, students and aficianados who share, create and promote the art of animation here and around trhe world. Members enjoy screenings, lectures and other events year-round. If you’ve read this far, shouldn’t you be a member too?

Membership is just $26 a year with printed newsletter mailed to you or $21 a year if you choose to receive each issue as email.
