ASIFA Meet n' GreetAuthor: Corrie Parks | Date: 7/10/20, 6:53 PM
2020 marks the 60th anniversary of ASIFA, and the 60th anniversary of the Annecy International Animation Festival. Though travel is restricted due to the COVID-19 pandemic and most events are moving online, ASIFA International continues to offer opportunities for animators to connect across cultures and borders.
Between 21 June and 3 July, ASIFA hosted 8 video meetings with approximately 40 participants calling in from China, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand, Greece, Germany, France, UK, Belgium, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada and the USA.
The topics of conversation were open and varied from online festivals, sharing work, professional practice in COVID times, and ASIFA activities around the world. This pilot version of the Meet n’ Greet was a great success and ASIFA plans to continue hosting online connections in the future.
