ANIMATION / EVENTS
The event is owned and produced by Kidscreen, with generous support from: hosting partner KOCCA (Korea); presenting partner BEKRAF (Indonesia); and supporting partners Create NSW and Screen Queensland (Australia), MDEC (Malaysia) and DITP (Thailand).
This year’s event is set to take place in Seoul, South Korea from November 20 to 22. 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.
It is anticipated that roughly 200 attendees will take part in Asian Animation Summit 2019, which is designed to attract producers of animation who are interested in co-producing projects with partners in Asia-Pacific countries, as well as broadcasters, distributors and investors from the region and beyond.
Roughly 50% of projects that have debuted at previous AAS events have since gone into production, including such well-known series as Bluey (2017), Bottersnikes & Gumbles (2012), Kuu Kuu Harajuku (2013), Wonderballs (2012) and Balloon Barnyard (2014).
